Our Programs

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University has a unique path to practice curriculum, taught by nationally recognized faculty experts, and prepares our graduates to succeed as lawyers in a diverse range of practice areas.

The JD program offers a rigorous, integrated curriculum designed to ensure the development of academic, procedural and lawyering skills. Flexible scheduling allows students to choose either a full-time or part-time option, and to begin in either the fall or spring semester.

Our curriculum combines traditional classroom education, skills training from top-tier attorneys, and immersive, hands-on learning through live-client clinics and field placements.
