Centers and Special Programs
Pace Law School is committed to serving the needs of our students, the legal profession, and members of the greater community. In our centers and special programs, practitioners, faculty, staff, and students join forces to pursue initiatives that influence evolving areas of the law and shape the development of public policy in exciting and emerging legal fields.
Through these centers and special programs, students concerned about issues such as environmental protection, investor justice, and violence against women can have an impact in these and other complex legal and social areas. Our centers are housed on campus and often offer paid positions to motivated students. You may conduct research, collaborate with faculty and one another, and provide a variety of services to surrounding communities in the White Plains area. These real-world experiences enhance your legal education, improve your resume, and bring all the pieces of your legal education together.
