Hofstra University School of Law has been named a partner in the American Bar Association-Environmental Protection Agency Law Office Climate Challenge Program. Hofstra becomes only the fourth law school in the nation to qualify for this “green” certification. Pace Law School is the only other such qualifying institution in New York. The program is designed to encourage law offices, government offices, citizens groups, courts, law schools and other law-related entities to take specific steps to conserve energy and resources. The ABA’s Law Practice Management Section co-sponsors the initiative. To qualify, partners must use paper with at least 30 percent post-consumer recycled content and switch the default settings on copiers and printers to double-sided, among other things.
