Pace Law School recently announced that it was given $1,000,000 by the venerable labor negotiator Theodore W. Kheel to create a dispute-resolution program focusing on environmental issues. Here is the link to Pace's press release on this generous gift. Pace is well known for its highly regarded programs in environmental law, and faculty members believe that conflict resolution in the area will grow because of such problems as climate change and protection of open space. The name of the center will be the "Kheel Center on Resolution of Environmental Interest Disputes," and it will headquartered at the Law School. The photo above shows Mr. Kheel with Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman, who was formerly Dean of the Law School.
