Professor Jay C. Carlisle, II was admitted to practice in New York (1970) and New Mexico (1972).  He practiced law until 1975 when he was appointed the first full time assistant dean at the SUNY-Buffalo Law School.  He joined Pace in 1978 and has taught courses in the areas of civil procedure, professional responsibility, New York Practice and dispute resolution.  He is the recipient of three Barbara Salken Outstanding Professor Awards and was selected as Commencement Speaker by the graduating class of 2001.  He lectures for many continuing legal education providers including the New York State Trial Lawyers Institute, the New York City Bar and the New York State Bar Association.  The American Bar Association, the American Law Institute and the New York State Trial Lawyers associations have honored Professor Carlisle with awards for his CLE contributions.

Professor Carlisle has been appointed to statewide commissions and committees by three New York State govenors and one Chief Judge.  Governor David Paterson appointed him a Law Revision Commissioner in 2009.  Since 1999 Carlisle has been a referee for the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct and has been a special master for the Supreme Court of New York since 1980.  In 2013 Carlisle received the "Academic Excellence Award" from the NYS Trial Lawyers Association, the "Outstanding Citizenship Award" from the Westchester County Executive and was selected as outstanding professor of the year by the law school's graduating class.  In 2013 Professor Carlisle received the "Outstanding Educator and Scholar Award" from the Westchester County Bar Foundation.

Professor Carlisle's scholarship has been cited by State and federal courts, including the New York State Court of Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.  Carlisle has testified as an expert witness on New York law before state and federal courts and before the International Court of Arbitration in Paris and the High Court of Appeal in London.  He received A.B. (1965) and J.D. (1969) degrees from the University of California at Los Angeles and Davis.  Carlisle completed graduate studies at Columbia University School of International Affairs (1969-70) and taught at the Pace London Law Program during the spring semesters of 1989 and 2009.  Carlisle has taught as an adjunct and visiting professor at the SUNY-Buffalo, New York, Fordham and Quinnipiac law schools.  He received the Pace Law School Alumni Association Award in 2007 and in 2014 the Law School's Jury Room was named in his honor.
