The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University offers outstanding programs in many fields of legal practice. Our #1 ranked Environmental Law program has consistently been ranked one of the best nationwide. Haub Law has earned a preeminent reputation in fields including Public Interest Law, Criminal Law and others. Students enjoy significant flexibility and breadth – in addition to the traditional J.D., Haub Law offers an accelerated two and a half year J.D., a Flex J.D. scheduling option, certificates and concentrations, eight joint degrees, and Master of Law degree options.  

Haub Law provides an excellent legal education to students who have a passion for the law. For more than four decades, we have known that a great legal education must teach more than statutes, regulations and case law. Students must also gain concrete practice skills and begin to learn the strategies and tactics of representation. 

As legal practice becomes ever more specialized, ever more complex and ever more competitive, our distinctive approach is more important than ever. Haub Law is home to the #1 ranked Environmental Law program in the nation, as well as many other outstanding programs in many fields of legal practice. We continue to build on our historic strength of training practice ready lawyers by expanding our nationally recognized clinics and field placement programs and by supplementing our extraordinary faculty with world-class practicing attorneys. The result is a “Path to Practice” curriculum that prepares our graduates to deliver value to firms and to clients. 

We are proud that the strength of our curriculum is enhanced by our diverse community. Each student brings unique perspectives and ideas to our classrooms and our programs.

Haub Law’s unique "Path to Practice" curriculum, our superb location in the heart of the nation's most dynamic legal marketplace, our commitment to providing the best possible education at an exceptional value to students, and our nationally recognized centers of excellence set Haub Law apart.
