About Pace Law

Pace Law first opened its doors on its White Plains campus in September 1976. As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of our first academic year, we are pleased to open a new chapter in our history.

In 2016, the Law School cemented its long-standing partnership with the Haub family, who believe strongly in our mission. This partnership brings an infusion of resources that is taking our environmental law program, and the entire Law School, to new heights. In recognition of the gift and our partnership with their family, we have added their name to ours – the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University.

As we commemorate the school first opening its doors, we continue to do the work that we have done for decades – providing an excellent legal education to students who have a passion for the law. For the past 40 years, 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. 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.

Pace 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 Pace Law apart. 

As we look toward the next 40 years, we anticipate even greater success in the years ahead.
