Pace Law School’s “New Direction for Attorneys” Program-Upcoming Session

Attorneys step aside from the legal profession for a variety of reasons and subsequently many decide to resume the practice of law. Some attorneys, although licensed, choose to pursue careers other than law and/or have never practiced. Pace School of Law, with support and assistance from the Westchester Women’s Bar Association, has developed a unique and innovative program, New Directions for Attorneys, designed to provide lawyers re-entering the legal marketplace with knowledge of substantive law, professional legal skills, and practical legal experience that will enhance their chances of success either as practicing attorneys or attorneys pursuing alternative non-legal careers. This part-time five month long program includes numerous components to support individuals in their re-entry efforts.

New Directions is a comprehensive program consisting of a diverse curriculum of substantive law covering a wide range of practice areas, training in practical legal skills, career-related workshops, and the opportunity to obtain an externship with an organization that provides supervised practical experience and mentoring.
