To our students:
No matter which of the 18 clinics you choose, you will receive the best of what Fordham Law has to offer -- the individual and personalized expertise of our full-time professors who are also practicing supervising attorneys and specialists in their field. You will learn to work with each other, real clients, the courts, opposing attorneys, community organizations, and the legislature to solve real problems for individuals, and for our society.
Thank you for all that you do,
Michael W. Martin, Associate Dean for Experiential Education
