He twice stepped in on short notice to serve as associate dean for administration. In 2001 and 2010 he received the Dean’s Medal of Recognition, and in 2005 he was named Teacher of the Year.
Dean Martin’s scholarship is as distinguished as his commitment to Fordham Law. His principal subjects are Torts, Civil Procedure, Evidence, and Conflicts of Law. He is a co-author of the 5-volume Federal Rules of Evidence Manual and of the New York Evidence Handbook. He has also written other books, law review articles, and, for 26 years, a column on Evidence for the New York Law Journal.
