  • Darren Guild 2011 | Pace Law School
    area of interest Darren remarked Professor Waldman s course exposed me to areas of education law that I did not realize existed Darren counts himself fortunate to have had the opportunity to take two year long clinics while at Pace Law School As a 2L he held a spot in the Special Education Law Clinic no longer offered with Professor Don Doernberg where he advocated for children with special needs and their families to receive appropriate educational programs and services As a 3L Darren worked at the Immigration Justice Clinic with Professor Vanessa Merton where he appeared in Family Criminal and Immigration Court drafted briefs and motions including a habeas petition and helped a young client receive his Green Card I feel a lot more confident going into real practice after doing both those clinics because I have a good sense of the work attorneys do on a day to day basis Darren said There s no better way to really learn how to be a lawyer than through the clinical program Darren also praised Pace s Public Interest Law Center PILC as an invaluable resource He said I was able to get advice specifically about public interest law which I think operates in some fundamentally different ways than other areas of law The PILC staff knows the field so well and were able to provide me with insight about what public interest employers look for and how to present myself in the best light Thanks to their guidance and support my summer internship and fellowship applications were noticed and I interviewed for most of the positions I applied for Shortly before graduating from Pace Darren was awarded the Westchester County Bar Foundation s Public Interest Law Fellowship which is now providing two years of funding for him to serve

    four years as a lawyer and one year as the chief compliance officer at an insurance company in his native Saudi Arabia Mohammed arrived in New York to complete an LLM degree in Comparative Legal Studies concentrating in business and commercial international law comparing Islamic law with United States law They are not as different as I expected he commented The Islamic law uses the same idea of the common law in some ways in regards to acts that are not covered by the enacted law But the legal system in Saudi Arabia has a special nature which is inspired by both Shari a law and civil law but it s more like a civil law country However in Saudi Arabia about 90 percent of the law is written and the balance is subject to royal decisions The bigger difference for him he says has been the way American law schools teach Here we read about real cases and then come to class and discuss he said In Saudi Arabia we would go to class and listen The Pace Law professors have also impressed him Mohammed cited Robert Michael s familiarity with Islamic finance law and Mark Shulman s extensive

  • Jason Herman 2006 | Pace Law School
    standing up in front of people and talking Through Moot Court competitions trial advocacy classes and internships working with legal professionals I acquired the ability to think on my feet gain the trust of a jury and advocate confidently I came to Pace Law because I didn t want a cut throat impersonal law school but a community in the suburbs where I could take advantage of great hands on learning opportunities And I took advantage of as many opportunities as I could For example in the Post Conviction Project I filed motions met with inmates and interviewed new witnesses One of our clients had been convicted of a sexual assault crime but new DNA evidence which could have changed the original outcome was uncovered and we advocated for its scientific testing In a murder case we interviewed a witness who was never put forward at the original trial In another clinic I drew up petitions filed pleadings stood in front of the judge and advocated for my clients while my professor supervised I was treated as if I were an attorney Beyond practical legal skills programs Pace Law offers a summer Skills Enrichment Program SEP for students who want a leg up on classwork before their first semester SEP was a great experience for me Not only did I meet lasting friends but I learned how to brief cases got used to being called on and generally learned to feel comfortable with law school all before my first real day of classes My experiences at Pace Law prepared me for my current position as an Assistant District Attorney in the Felony Trial Bureau at the Bronx County DA s Office Because I studied prisoners rights visited prisons interned in legal services and observed how defenders work I feel I

    many young people Roman was unsure what he wanted to do or where he wanted to go So he joined the United States Air Force where he spent the next four years as an aircrew intelligence instructor I was one of those kids who wasn t on the right track says Roman Not that I was a bad kid I just didn t understand what I wanted to do with my life It was just me and my mom and she couldn t afford to send me to college He took advantage of the Montgomery GI Bill which he says put me on the right track Roman s track led him to Pace Law School where he participated in the Family Court Legal Program representing battered women in family court and the Criminal Justice Clinic Both experiences were very hands on conducting interviews serving subpoenas drafting motions and going before a judge The result His sights now have turned to a career in criminal justice defense I always saw things from the side of law enforcement he says that if you got in trouble it was because you did something wrong But now I see that a lot of people involved are innocent and so a criminal defense career will have a satisfying pay off In the Criminal Justice Clinic he represented clients in trespass assault and criminal mischief cases It was an experience he calls very intense where you read the law learn the fundamentals and then go out and get the job done You are always anxious about it says Roman At arraignments our client is usually brought out in handcuffs You stand before the judge the prosecutor rattles away his accusations you have five minutes to present the case and then the judge decides whether your client
