    Pace University’s Elisabeth Haub School of Law Dean Emeritus Richard Ottinger has been recognized by the American Bar Association

    Pace University’s Elisabeth Haub School of Law Dean Emeritus Richard Ottinger has been recognized by the American Bar Association for his leadership in environmental policy. The ABA’s Section of Environment, Energy and Resources presented Ottinger with its 2017 Award for Distinguished Achievement in Environmental Law and Policy at its annual meeting on August 13.

    Ottinger, who served as dean of Pace’s Law School from 1994 through 1999, was praised as a trailblazer whose work on behalf of the environment has spanned more than 50 years, and encompassed key milestones in the protection of the Hudson River and the Long Island Sound, as well as energy regulation. Dean Ottinger has been a supporter and contributor to the Academy for many years and, for those of you who attended the closing plenary at this year’s Colloquium, David Hodas featured one of his many career accomplishments in his presentation:  The Remarkable Dick Ottinger Sustainable Energy Story. A well-deserved award for a remarkable Academy scholar.
