Alumni Highlight

Karen MazzaWhen Karen Mazza ('82) graduated from SUNY Albany in 1979 with an English degree she had made up her mind that she would attend law school. After applying to several New York law schools, Karen was accepted into Pace and enthusiastically chose to attend.

"Pace was ideally located in White Plains, which gave me access to the legal market in the Westchester area and also in New York City. It was a fairly new school, but had already begun building a wonderful reputation for educating great lawyers in a practical manner." As a student, Karen was involved – she was the Vice President of the Student Bar Association and also volunteered as a student liaison for recruitment. "My time at Pace was thoroughly enjoyable. I loved my professors and felt they all genuinely cared about my future success as an attorney. I learned how to think and analyze-the most valuable skills you can learn in law school. I also made lifelong friends who I still keep in touch with."
