July 09, 2007

The inaugural session of the Fordham Law Summer Institute in New York City was launched July 8.  This two-week program provides an overview of the U.S. legal system and various topics of U.S. law. Classes will be taught by members of the Fordham Law faculty who are experts in their respective fields.

"This program gives foreign-trained lawyers and law students a wonderful opportunity to learn about U.S. law at one of the top law schools in the United States," said Toni M. Fine, Assistant Dean for International and Non-J.D. Programs.

The Summer Institute supplements classroom instruction with numerous field trips to Federal Court, a New York law firm, and the United Nations.

The program is being co-directed by Dean Fine and Professor Thomas H. Lee. Sixty-six students from 20 countries around the world have enrolled in the program.
