A scholarly center, with an ethically premised mission to further the remedial objectives of Environmental Law: this conception inspired establishment of Pace's Center For Environmental Legal Studies in 19821 when Professor Donald W. Stever, Jr., joined me in launching this new focus through which the Pace University School of Law's Environmental Law Faculty could use their expertise to further, refine, and fashion environmental protection and the conservation of natural resources. In the Center's first decade, our Environmental Faculty managed to exceed our Center's imagined goals, and as the Center enters its march to the year 2002, we are rethinking our tasks.
