Women’s Justice Center
The Pace Women’s Justice is dedicated to eradicating domestic violence and furthering the legal rights of women, children, and the elderly through skillful and innovative use of the law. The Center’s goal is to give those who support battered women, the elderly, women with low income, victims of sexual assault and children, the education and legal tools they need to stop violence against women, seek economic justice, empower the underrepresented and save lives.
The Center involves Pace law students in a number of its activities, including: the Family Court Externship Program, which is funded by the county, through which law students annually provide counseling and direct representation to over 1,000 victims of domestic violence who would otherwise be unable to procure counsel.
