Nicholas A. Robinson Award for Distinguished Environmental Achievement

Congratulations to Marc Yaggi & Dan Estrin, recipients of the 2017 Robinson Award!

The Pace Environmental Law Alumni Association presented Marc Yaggi ’97 and Dan Estrin ‘93 with the 2017 Nicholas Robinson Award for Distinguished Environmental Achievement, recognizing environmental achievement, support for the law school and its students and alumni, and embodiment of the spirit of the inimitable Nick Robinson

The Nicholas Robinson Award for Distinguished Environmental Achievement was established in 2005 to recognize Pace alumni who have made significant contributions to environmental law. In 2007, Professor Robinson requested that the Pace Environmental Law Alumni Association (formerly the Pace Environmental Alumni Council (PEAC)) take over bestowal of this annual honor.

(Pictured above, Marla Weider, J.D. '93, received the 2009 Robinson Award for her outstanding work with the EPA cleaning up major hazardous waste sites in New York and the Caribbean.)
