Nicholas A. Robinson Alumni Achievement Award

Voting for the 2015 Nicholas A. Robinson Alumni Achievement Award will open soon!

Please stay tuned for an email from the Pace Environmental Alumni Council!


The Nicholas A. Robinson Alumni Achievement Award was established in 2005 to recognize Pace alumni who have made significant contributions to environmental law. In 2007, Professor Robinson requested that the Pace Environmental Alumni Council (PEAC) take over bestowal of this annual honor.
