Fordham Law School is pleased to announce that William Michael Treanor, the dean of the law school, will ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, August 18 at 9:30 am. The event is part of a yearlong celebration marking the law school's 100th anniversary. Dean Treanor will be joined at the bell-ringing by Fr. Joseph McShane, the President of Fordham University, as well as by several law school faculty and alumni.
 
The law school has had many other noteworthy accomplishments during its centennial year, including:
 
A record-breaking $20 million fundraising campaign for the 2005-06 fiscal year.

The establishment of six new faculty chairs in the areas of advocacy; business law; international human rights; real estate, land use and property law; legal ethics, morality and religion; and urban legal issues.

The opening this fall of the Feerick Center for Social Justice and Dispute Resolution, a program led by former dean John Feerick that will use alternative dispute resolution to address complex social justice issues facing urban areas.

The creation of a Forum on Law, Culture, and Society designed to examine the intersection of legal and moral issue through the lens of the arts.

The opening bell ringing is routinely broadcast on CNBC and on Bloomberg Television.
