Please join YouthLaw on Thursday November 6th at 12:30 in room 4-08 for Fordham Law’s first ever panel on LGBTQ youth homelessness in New York City.  Our speakers will paint a picture of what it means to advocate for this population on the individual, community, and state levels.  They will also explain how we as law students can become more involved in working with vulnerable youth communities.  Here are their brief (but amazing) bios:

Steven Gordon -- Former Director of Drop-In Services at the Ali Forney Center, a service provider for NYC homeless LGBT youth

Megan Stuart -- Staff Attorney at the Peter Cicchino Youth Project, Urban Justice Center

Kimberly Forte -- Supervising Attorney at The Legal Aid Society, LGBT Law and Policy Initiative

THERE WILL BE FOOD! The event is co-sponsored by YouthLaw, OUTLaws, Stein Scholars, and DVAC.  We hope to see you there (along with all of your friends)!

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM CRT/Empirical Methods Conference
Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been an influential aspect of legal scholarship on race and inequality for roughly 20 years, but its methodology has been largely literary. The motivation behind this symposium is the idea that the important issues raised by CRT could benefit substantially from greater integration with social science methods that can quantitatively and qualitatively measure the phenomena brought to light by Critical Race insights. At the same time, the sometimes less- than-robust theories used to motivate empirical research on race also could benefit from CRT’s theoretical sophistication.

The symposium will bring together scholars from law, the humanities, and the social sciences to critically engage and articulate the previously unexplored confluences between empirical studies of race and identity, and doctrinal/ critical work on the topic.
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Law School Tour
A guided tour of the law school will be presented by a current student. The tour should last between 30-45 minutes. You must register online at least 24 hours in advance to secure a spot. Please have a state issued form of identification to gain access to the building.  

Your tour guide will meet you in the lobby of the law school building by the welcome desk.

6:00 PM - 7:50 PM How Judges Decide: Hon. Brian Cogan
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.
The course will be taught by Fordham Law Adjunct Professors James Bernard and Joel Cohen, author of Blindfolds Off: Judges On How They Decide.
