Clinics and Externships

At Pace, we recognize that developing practical skills through clinical education and professional job experience is an essential component of any legal education. Our students may choose from several outstanding and unique experiential learning opportunities, including our renowned litigation clinic, where they develop the critical, analytical, and professional skills needed to become successful environmental attorneys.

Dual Degrees

Through Pace's joint degree programs, a student may earn a JD while working on a second advanced degree. By enrolling in a joint degree program, a full-time student may complete both degrees within four years, instead of the five years of study required when each degree is pursued separately. Part-time students can complete a joint degree program in as few as six years.
