Joint Degree

Alix Dobles, '18

An ordinary student pursuing their Juris Doctorate at Pace Law will usually spend three years on campus. However, Alix is no ordinary student. Through her academic success and the substantial connections at Pace Law, Alix was able to enroll in a dual degree program and will graduate with a J.D. from Pace Law and a Masters in Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. 

Alix enrolled at Pace Law as a full-time student in the fall of 2014. She then spent two years studying environmental law at Pace before spending a full year at the Yale University campus, obtaining her Masters. Alix rejoined the Pace Law community for her final year and will be walking at graduation in May of 2018.

Alix credits her substantial success to the extensive pool of Pace Law alumni. She explains, “I find this web of alumni to be very comforting as I plan to enter the workforce, but also it shows that the industry has confidence in the legal skills that Pace Law cultivates in its students.” Alix has helped solidify the relationship between Pace Law and Yale, and has set a precedent for future students to follow her tremendous footsteps.
