The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University community came together on Monday, October 3 to mark the beginning of the new Supreme Court term (known as “First Monday”). Haub Law professor Leslie Tenzer moderated a distinguished panel which included Haub Law Professors Bridget Crawford and Emily Gold Waldman as well as attorneys Mashayla Hays, Legal Counsel from The Lawyering Project and Kulsoon Ijaz, Staff Attorney for the Center for Reproductive Rights. The panel engaged in a thoughtful discussion on the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade.  Additionally, they analyzed the decision itself, the future landscape of legal protections for reproductive rights, and the larger implications for the rule of law. Pace University President Marvin Krislov delivered welcome remarks, along with Congressman Jamaal Bowman (NY-16), who urged Haub Law students to be “courageous, relentless and to lead and learn with love all the while, understanding the urgency of the moment we live in.”

“With so many important decisions in the balance, this upcoming Supreme Court term holds great significance for our society, for the legal community, and for the rule of law,” said Dean Horace Anderson. “As a law school, we seek to educate our students on these pivotal rulings, to inspire them, and to provide them with the tools that will enable them to become leaders in the future.”
