This fall, as part of a course entitled How Judges Decide, distinguished federal and state court judges will open up about thorny issues that they wrestle with daily in court. Questions to be addressed include

• How do judges determine credibility?
• Can judges put aside their personal biases?
• What do judges expect from their clerks?
• 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.
