On Monday, May 23, the dedicated adjunct faculty of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University were recognized and honored at a reception held on the Law School campus.

During the reception, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Law Operations, Professor Jill I. Gross, expressed her gratitude to the Haub Law adjunct faculty. Professor Gross noted that while there are many reasons why Haub Law adjunct faculty are valued, three important reasons include their quick and seamless COVID-19 responses in adapting to the unprecedented global pandemic, their professionalism, and their dedication.  “You all have been so dedicated to the education and academic success of our students, especially meeting each of them individually where they are, empathizing with their struggles and celebrating their achievements,” said Professor Gross.

Significantly, Adjunct Professor Richard Steer, a long-time member of the faculty, was honored as he retires from teaching at Haub Law. “Hired in 1984, Richard has served the Haub Law community with dedication for 38 years, teaching Labor and Employment Law and mentoring generations of our students,” stated Professor Gross. In addition to his teaching at Haub Law, Professor Steer is a Partner in Tarter Krinsky & Drogin LLP’s Labor and Employment Practice Group and chairs the firm’s Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) practice.

Dean Horace Anderson also thanked our adjunct faculty for their tireless dedication to Haub Law and its students. “Adjunct faculty bring important real-world experience and practical skills to our classrooms as active practitioners in some of the most vibrant areas of the law,” said Dean Anderson. “We are thankful and appreciative for the immeasurable impact they have had and continue to have on our law school and its students.”
