We provide opportunities for law students
Because of the Center’s affiliation with Pace Law School, law students are an integral component of the Center’s innovative and highly successful programs. At the Center, law students are assigned to work in specific programs and an attorney/mentor provides training and on-going supervision and guidance. In addition, our Family Court Legal Program Externship provides students with practical hands-on legal experience at our White Plains and Yonkers Family Court sites directly assisting victims and survivors of domestic violence.
