Elisabeth Haub School of Law

Summary: Pace University law school will be getting a name change in honor on the family of the school’s largest donation in history.

Pace University Law won’t be much longer. After a large donation, the school will be renaming itself after the late matriarch of the donors. The law school outside New York City will now be known as Elisabeth Haub School of Law.

The donors, a German family, did not want the amount of the donation disclosed but the law school says the donation is comparable to those given at George Mason University and Villanova University. The donation is the largest in the school’s history.

The new name is inspired by Elisabeth Haub, a philanthropist and businesswoman that championed environmental causes. She died in 1977. Her son and daughter-in-law, who own the Tengelmann Group, have gifted the money to the law school.

The donation will also establish a law school endowment and fund a scholars program for its top-ranked environmental law program. There will also be money left to endow chairs in public international law and environmental law.

Law school dean David Yassky said, “We are enormously thankful for the Haub family’s support of our distinctive ‘path to practice’ model of legal education. At a time when many law schools are retrenching, this gift allows us to strengthen our program, especially the in-the-field learning that we believe is so crucial for students’ success in practice.”

Pace Law has not been immune to the suffering legal-education market. Faculty and staff have been forced to take pay cuts in order to save money for the tuition-matching program.
