On behalf of the PILSO Executive Board and the Public Interest Law Center, we are extremely pleased to report on the success of the annual online PILSO Public Interest Auction - the Auction raised close to $23,000! We are so grateful to everyone at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University who participated in this “online event” in support of our students pursuing public interest summer internships. We especially would like to thank our alumni, faculty and administrators who donated so many wonderful items and who placed bids on others. We look forward to the Auction next year!

Pace Law's Immigration Justice Clinic ("IJC") is a true legal clinic, in which law students are licensed to perform all the tasks and make all the decisions that arise during their direct representation of real clients, as distinct from externships (where the law student assists and acts under the direction of, but is not, the lawyer) or simulated lawyering courses (where the student acts in role as, but is not, the lawyer). The IJC serves indigent people living, working, or detained in the Hudson Valley, in the five boroughs, and when feasible Long Island.

Join us in welcoming Katrina Fischer Kuh to the Pace Law's faculty as the Haub Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law. Professor Kuh is an accomplished scholar with extensive experience working in the government and private sectors protecting the environment and natural resources. Professor Kuh will begin her role as a full time faculty member in the fall of 2017. You can read more here and here.
