“Like a Bridge Over Troubled Water…”

The Pace Women’s Justice Center is changing the lives of the more than 2,800 victims and survivors of domestic violence who PWJC serves every year, as well as the law students who work with them.

The Pace Women’s Justice Center became the first academic legal center in the country devoted to training lawyers and others in domestic violence issues. Every year, Pace Law students who participate in invaluable semester-long externships and summer internships come out of the experience changed. As a former intern says, “Helping women in crisis take the first step towards a better, safer and happier life gave me a true sense of purpose to my legal studies.”
