Message from the Dean

If you've been keeping score on legal education lately, you know today's law students face many challenges. One of the greatest is harnessing the financial resources needed to attend the best law schools, which prepare students for success in the legal profession and diverse careers around the globe. That's where the Fordham Law Campaign comes in: Scholarships are one of its five priorities. The others are our new building, faculty chairs, centers and institutes, and the Fordham Law Annual Fund.

Since we launched the Campaign in November 2008, alumni and friends of Fordham Law have made bold investments in these five priorities. Because of this generous support we met the Campaign's original dollar goal, yet we still have fundraising priorities that remain unfulfilled. Your gift will help us reach the goals for these priorities.

Indeed, the combination of gifts made by the School's alumni and friends creates powerful, life-changing opportunities for students—including the scholarships that help them attend Fordham Law in the first place.

I invite you to peruse these web pages or download the Campaign Brochure [pdf] to learn more. Every gift truly makes an impact, and I hope you are inspired to make a gift today.

With gratitude,


Michael M. Martin
Dean and University Distinguished Professor of Law
