Fordham Law

Fordham University's Lincoln Center Plan Approved

July 01, 2009

The New York City Council voted June 30, 2009, to approve Fordham University's development plan for the Lincoln Center Campus. The vote was the final step in the approval process for the campus plan, which includes creation of a new building for Fordham Law.

Designed by the internationally renowned architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the new building will provide necessary space and needed technologies in an iconic structure that will embody the excellence of Fordham Law.

Many alumni have already made generous gifts to help fund construction of the building. For example, the building will welcome faculty, staff, students, friends, and alumni through a central atrium next to the Advocacy Center, which is made possible through a $5 million gift from Tom Moore '79 and his wife, Judy Livingston. It will feature a stunning and spacious library, funded by a $5 million gift from T.J. Maloney '79 and his wife, Nancy. Additional leadership gifts for the building have been made by a number of alumni across the decades, including Barbara & Frederick Bissinger '38, Peggy Hill '64, Denis Cronin '72, C. David Sammons '88, Joseph De Simone '94, and Daniel N. Anziska, Esq. '00.
