Pace University Renames Law School

Law school now known as the "Elisabeth Haub School of Law"

New York's Pace University has announced that it has renamed its law school to the Elisabeth Haub School of Law, after receiving a donation from the Haub family.

The name change is in honor of Elisabeth Haub, a German environmentalist, philanthropist and entrepreneur who passed away in 1977. 

In 1968, Haub founded the Karl Schmitz-Scholl Fund, which works toward enacting regulatory changes for environmental goals.

Along with the new name, the donation from the Haub family will also allow Pace's law school to fund a range of new initiatives and create a Chair in Environmental Law.

Pace University has a longstanding collaboration with Haub's family. Since 1997, Pace has worked with the International Council of Environmental Law to award the "Elisabeth Haub Award for Environment Diplomacy," which each year recognizes the environmental accomplishments of diplomats, international civil servants and other negotiators.
