Students report that Pace Law School offers the best of all worlds – a bucolic campus ideal for undistracted study and learning plus close proximity to New York City, an undisputedly exciting attraction. Pace Law School is conveniently located in the City of White Plains, New York. White Plains is the commercial hub and county seat of Westchester, an affluent suburban county that is home to nearly one million people. It was recently selected as one of the top 50 small cities in America.
White Plains is an extraordinarily law-student-friendly city, with abundant housing, transportation and things to do. In their spare time, students enjoy its young and vibrant social scene – with bars, restaurants and live music – as well as two large shopping malls and a 15-screen theater.
It is a great asset to Pace Law students that the US Courthouse in White Plains is a full-service courthouse, with all of the offices and agencies customarily found in a Federal Courthouse. The only Federal Courthouse between Manhattan and Albany, both US District Judges and US Magistrate Judges preside over cases filed at the White Plains Courthouse. Also, located within the White Plains Courthouse are the Bankruptcy Court, Pretrial Services, Federal Defenders, US Probation, US Marshal Service and a division of the US Attorney's Office. There are many law firms headquartered in or maintaining branch offices in White Plains, further increasing the prospect of internships and summer employment.
While there is much to do on campus and in the City of White Plains, there is no denying that New York City is an irresistible lure. It is accessible via the Metro North railroad in as little as 33 minutes, making it a housing and internship option as well as a fun and cultural destination.
