Pace Environmental Alumni Council

The Pace Environmental Alumni Council (“PEAC”) is comprised of graduates of Pace Law School who are practicing in the field of environmental law and/or who obtained a Certificate of Study in Environmental Law or an LLM in Environmental Law.    

The purpose of PEAC is threefold: (1) to encourage, facilitate, and maintain meaningful connections between Pace Law School and its environmental program graduates; (2) to further the renown of the environmental law program at Pace Law School; and (3) to lend career assistance and provide advice to Pace’s environmental students and graduates pursuing careers in environmental law. Pace environmental alumni believe that Pace’s strong environmental community and history of mentorship sets Pace apart from all other environmental programs. PEAC members can connect prospective students with Pace alumni practicing environmental law. We encourage prospective students to reach out via the email addresses below.

To achieve its purpose, PEAC undertakes and participates in Pace Law School and Alumni events by, among other activities, hosting environmental alumni gatherings, mentoring Pace’s environmental students, assisting in the promotion of the National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition held at the Law School each February, and bestowing the Nicholas A. Robinson Award upon deserving alumni. 

If you are interested in participating in PEAC, please contact any of our members listed below and join us on LinkedIn and/or Facebook.
