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.

Explore Paths to Practice

Earn a JD while working on a second advanced degree, all within four years. Part-time students can complete a joint degree program in as few as six years.

Pace Law offers 10 different dual degree programs. Dual Degree students must apply and be admitted separately to the Law School and the relevant joint degree partner school.
