The academic philosophy at Pace is that we get our students ready to practice. We give them rigorous academic training, particularly in their first year. And then we try to get them out into situations where they can actually apply what they learn as early as possible.
There's a lot of different ways that students can learn at Pace from faculty. They're obviously in a classroom setting. There is conferences, and symposiums, and talks that many of the faculty, including myself, put together. They have a common hour, which allows faculty to present different speakers that might be of interest to the students.
We try to give the student as many options as possible. We allow a student to start their degree when they're ready to start their degree in terms of what time of year.
Our advocacy programs, both trial advocacy and moot court, all those programs are run by practicing lawyers. So the students get that incredibly powerful professional supervision and experience.
Advocacy programs really make you use what you've learned in the classroom. Law school makes you think like a lawyer. And working in the clinic or in trial teams allows you to really use what you've learned and put it to effect.
