Following his retirement from the NYPD, Phil Pulaski received a Master of Laws (LLM) advanced law degree from Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law School. While studying for his LLM degree, he maintained a 4.0 GPA and graduated summa cum laude. Additionally, Phil Pulaski is a member of the New York State Bar Association and the American Bar Association. Recently, Phil Pulaski became an adjunct professor of law at Pace University Law School and will teach an advanced criminal law seminar in the Spring 2021 semester.

Located 20 miles north of the heart of New York City, the hallmarks of Pace include experiential learning, faculty mentoring, rigorous skills training and cutting edge world class programs. The majority of classes have 19 students, which enables close faculty-student relationships. In May 2016, Pace University Law School was renamed in honor of Elisabeth Haub who was a tireless environmental advocate and philanthropist.
The Haub Family gave a significant financial gift to the Law School, the largest that Pace University has received in its history. The Haub family gift was used to establish an endowment that strengthens the school’s renowned environmental law program and funds innovative teaching initiatives. The gift continues to build upon Elisabeth Haub’s extraordinary legacy of promoting the progress of environmental law, with particular emphasis on activities that impact policy, promote a balanced approach to sustainable growth and reflect the global nature of environmental issues.
