Spring 2014 Issue

The law is neither studied nor practiced in a vacuum. Legal work is not performed in isolation. To solve complicated contemporary problems, legal scholars and professionals must integrate the principles and methodologies of various disciplines across the societal and academic spectrums. In this issue of Fordham Lawyer magazine, the importance of interdisciplinary research and study is made clear. From Professor Deborah Denno's nationally recognized scholarship to Professor Kimani Paul-Emile's strikingly original research, from the beautifully complex field of art law to the critical work of lawyers at Guantanamo, the Fordham Law community is eager to cross borders and disciplines.
