"...an exciting opportunity."
by Joan Gaylord
Forty years-- four decades that have included seven American presidents, four Supreme Court chief justices and more than 8,000 students starting their legal careers at Pace Law.
Since our founding, Pace has stressed the importance of learning not just in the classroom, but outside of it as well. Forty years later, this core foundation has proven to be more relevant than ever as students successfully transition from law school to legal practice in today's marketplace. No longer the new kid on the block among law schools, Pace has carved a unique and valuable place in legal education, well poised to grow even stronger over the next 40 years.
The driver behind the creation of the School was Pace University President Dr. Edward Mortola. MORE>>
Feminist Judgments: A Conversation with
Professor Bridget Crawford
Your book, "Feminist Judgments: Rewritten Opinions of the United States Supreme Court" was published this spring by Cambridge University Press. How did that book come about?
In 2013, my co-editor Kathy Stanchi at Temple University heard British law professor Erika Rackley speak at a conference about a similar project in the U.K. The U.K. project was itself inspired by the Women's Court of Canada, a group of Canadian lawyers and law professors who rewrote several Canadian cases from a feminist perspective. The U.K. project rewrote 23 opinions from the Court of Appeal and House of Lords and then paired each rewritten opinion with a commentary that explained the original case, how the feminist rewrite differed, and what difference the feminist rewrite could have made, had it been the actual opinion.
New Concentrations Designed with an Eye on the Jobs Market
The school launched two new concentrations this year-- Real Estate & Land Use and Criminal Practice. Both iniatives prescribe a list of courses that focus on a specific practice area, an asset both to students as they plan their three years of law school but also to potential employers seeking to choose the most qualified applicants from a pool of new graduates. The new concentrations were designed in consultation with members of the legal community, said Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Horace Anderson, and will continue to be evaluated in light of current hiring trends.
