Celebrating “Pace” Women in the Law

In the 43 years since the founding of Pace University School of Law, now known as the Elisabeth Haub School of Law, our alumnae made great impact as members of the Judiciary, in private practice, and as leaders in the legal community. Please join us for a panel discussion and reception celebrating "Pace Women in the Law", featuring a representative Panel of the School's accomplished graduates.

  • Hon. Francesca Connolly (Appellate Division)
  • Hon. Linda S. Jamieson (Supreme Court, Civil Cases)
  • Hon. Delores Scott Brathwaite (Greenburg Town Court)
  • Diane Clerkin, Esq. (Senior Court Attorney of the NYS Supreme Court)
  • Lucille Fontana, Esq. (Civil litigator, Medical Malpractice/Personal Injury)
  • Diane Webster, Esq. (Adjunct Professor of Elisabeth Haub School of Law)


Last year we had a detailed discussion concerning the 1986 "Summary Report, New York Task Force on Women in the Courts", hearing from the first wave of Women Law School graduates and the work to embrace diversity in our Courts and Judiciary. This year, we take it forward, focusing on our School's Women Graduates who will discuss their experiences as Women in the Law, how Women were regarded during the progression of their legal career in the Wake of the Task Force Report and the things we can do to create a better and more equally represented and respected environment for Women in the Law.

Refreshments and light appetizers will be served.
