Pace Law School creating the environmental legal leaders of the future
FCWC’s Announces its Three Honorees for its 50th Anniversary Gala on September 26, 2015
On September 26, 2015, Federated Conservationists of Westchester County (FCWC) will be holding its 50th Anniversary Gala to celebrate its achievements over the past five decades. The evening will be held at a private estate in Sleepy Hollow, and will be filled with music, hors d’oeuvres, and good company. We will be marking this milestone event by honoring three of Westchester’s most influential environmental leaders, Pace Law School, Bedford 2020, and Dr. Cynthia Rosenzweig.
FCWC took care in the selection of its honorees, as it was important to represent its three founding pillars: Education, Advocacy, and Science. Additionally, due to the significance of this occasion, FCWC wanted to honor an institution, a nonprofit, and an individual. We are delighted to award these outstanding environmental leaders with our Green Legacy Award; we thank them for their environmental contributions to our Westchester community and the world.
We are proud of what our honorees have accomplished in the realm of environmental progress, so would like to provide a little background on each of them.
Pace Law School
In 1980, Pace Law School became a pioneer in the world of environmental law; and in 2015, it has risen to become one of the premiere institutions for environmental legal studies. Pace Law School’s prestigious Environmental Law Program is consistently ranked among the top four environmental law programs nationally. Adding to the many accolades this program has received, FCWC has selected Pace Law School as one of our 50th Anniversary Honorees for its commitment to bettering environmental law and the world’s environment.
