Putting Students on a Path to Practice

Pace Law offers outstanding programs in many fields of legal practice. Our world-class Environmental Law program has consistently been ranked among the best nationwide. At Pace Law, we have always known that a great legal education must teach more than statutes, regulations and case law. Students must also gain concrete practice skills. In addition to the traditional J.D., we offer an accelerated two-and-a-half year J.D., certificates in International and Environmental Law, eight joint degrees, and Masters of Law degree options.
