Campaign Priorities




One of the biggest challenges today's students face is financing their legal education. Robust financial aid has become the most critical incentive for recruiting and retaining the nation's top students. Your gift for scholarships ensures that a Fordham Law education is affordable, regardless of a student's financial situation.

Annual Fund

The Fordham Law Annual Fund pools gifts of all sizes to enrich the student experience. How? By providing fiscal flexibility to focus your contributions to the School where assistance is needed most urgently—from student recruitment, to career planning services and clinical education, to student journals and organizations.

Faculty Chairs

At the heart of Fordham Law School—indeed, of any great law school—is our faculty. Fordham Law competes against the very best law schools in the nation for the most qualified legal scholars, and faculty chairs give us a competitive edge in faculty recruitment and retention.

Centers & Institutes

Fordham Law's centers and institutes are a tangible expression of the School's motto: "In the service of others." They advance legal scholarship, provide hands-on training and continuing legal education, and deliver desperately needed legal services to the poor. They also enrich the lives of students and alumni by exploring the relationships among the law, lawyers, society, and culture.

New Building

Fordham Law outgrew our current building long ago. That's why the new building has been a centerpiece of the Fordham Law Campaign. Designed to reflect the excellence of the School's faculty and students, it will more than double our total instructional space and provide a range of resources to enhance students' learning and their sense of community.
