You are here
At Pace Law School, we understand that one of the major reasons you are interested in studying law is because you care about justice and want to make a difference in other people’s lives – and we see no reason why you should wait until you become a lawyer to make an impact. While studying at Pace, you are strongly encouraged to participate in any number of outreach and extracurricular activities that give you the chance to work side by side with your practitioners, peers, and professors on issues that concern you. For example, by participating in one of our on-campus centers, many of which offer paid positions to motivated students, you can pursue initiatives that shape public policy and influence evolving areas of the law, such as domestic violence, land use law, energy conservation, and international business.
You may also choose to participate in one of Pace’s student-run organizations, which examine legal and social issues, serve as forums for critique and discussion, and coordinate on- and off-campus activities. They also provide additional opportunities to make connections with students at Pace and other law schools, legal professionals, and members of the community.
Students with superior academic and writing ability may also be invited to work for one of Pace’s three law reviews, each operated entirely by Pace Law students. Editing, writing, and soliciting scholarly materials for these publications is an excellent way to enhance your legal writing skills, showcase your abilities, and stay current with emerging legal trends.
