Fordham University (Fordham Law School)

Known as “the Friendly Law School” of New York City, Fordham University is an amiable oasis within the hustle and bustle of its hometown. While the curriculum is indisputably difficult, Fordham students are guided through the myriad challenges they face with the encouragement and support of the school’s accomplished faculty, who “are available, encouraging, incredibly knowledgeable of their subject matter, interesting, and personable. They take time and view students as people and individuals with whom
they are working.” Inside the classroom, Fordham professors are “genuinely enthusiastic about teaching” and “truly want their students to go beyond basic understanding of the law.” The overall effect is an “extremely challenging intellectual environment” that is
somehow “less mind-boggling” than its reputable name might suggest.

Resources at Fordham University include two scenic campuses in New York City and two in Westchester county. The resources contained vary with location, with facilities which go beyond the obvious instructional and research needs.
