Fordham Law School's Louis Stein Center for Law and Ethics examines the important role that lawyers play in our society and explores how ethical values inform and improve the legal profession. The Stein Center promotes critical thinking and analysis of legal ethics by hosting and sponsoring colloquia and symposia, promoting the open exchange of ideas among academics and practitioners, and supporting scholarship in the area of legal ethics and professionalism. The Stein Center also captures national attention with programs such as the Stein Scholars Program and the annual Fordham-Stein Prize.
