• Should a judge be an umpire or something more?

As a benefit to the entire Fordham Law community, most of these classes will be open for any and all Fordham Law students to attend, whether or not they are formally enrolled in the course. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to attend.

Lectures will take place on Thursdays from 6:00–7:50 p.m. in Room 4-04.
