WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- In an age of climate change, sustainability and growing environmental awareness, Pace University’s Elisabeth Haub School of Law recently welcomed one of the fields' most senior experts to its faculty.
Starting in fall 2017 Katrina Fischer Kuh will join the Law School’s faculty as the first-ever Haub Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law. An accomplished lawyer with extensive experience in environment and natural resource protection, Kuh will serve as a full-time faculty member.
“Our Environmental Law Program is nationally recognized, and the addition of Professor Kuh and her expertise only bolsters the program," said David Yassky, the law school's dean.
Kuh comes to the Elisabeth Haub School of Law from the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, where she taught Environmental Law, International Environmental Law, Global Climate Change and U.S. Law, Administrative Law and Torts. Her area of study focuses on climate change, sustainability and second generation environmental challenges.
“I’m humbled and excited to join one of the country’s most respected and innovative environmental law programs,” said Kuh. “Pace faculty, alumni and students have long been at the forefront of developing law and policy to protect the environment and promote sustainability. I look forward to contributing to this important work.”
Prior to her career in academia, Kuh worked in the environmental and litigation practice groups of Arnold & Porter LLP and served as an advisor on natural resource policy in the United States Senate. She received her law degree from the Yale Law School.
“Professor Kuh’s cutting edge research offers new and creative approaches to deal with climate change,” added Jason Czarnezki, associate dean and Kerlin Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law. “Her addition further strengthens our world renowned environmental faculty.”
Pace Law’s environmental law program is nationally recognized and is currently ranked third in the country by US News & World Report.
