- Law Day 2016
This year, Law Day 2016 will be held at New York Law School on Saturday, October 8th. New York Law School joined as our second law school sponsor in 2010. 2016 will be the school’s third time hosting the event. Since 1999, Pace Law School has generously underwritten this event, as our premier Law Day sponsor, and has hosted the program for 17 years, consecutively for the first 12 years. In 2005, we partnered with the Hispanic National Bar Association—New York Region (HNBA-NY) to consolidate our efforts to offer programming appropriate for high school students interested in law. Since then, The Puerto Rican Bar Association has joined as a cosponsor, as well as MetroLALSA, Inc. Find out more here.
