Mission
Fordham’s Forum on Law, Culture, & Society is a public humanities program that offers a respectful engaging town hallsetting for the general public to satisfy their intellectual curiosity on matters of law, justice, and civil society.

Moving beyond this surface obsession with the legal system, the Fordham Forum explores the general public’s longing for a deeper sense of justice that is moral and makes sense. Each forum focuses on a provocative legal issue andprovides a space where diverse minds can address the ambiguities, moral mysteries and uncertainties of the law and the society that sanctions it.

The Forum engages guests in far ranging conversations and stimulates audience participation that promotes meaningful dialogue. After each Forum, the conversation continues in cyberspace via podcasting and an interactive blog at fordhamlawandculture.blogspot.com

Mission
The Interdisciplinary Center's first mission is interdisciplinary graduate education among the University's Schools of Law, Graduate Education and Graduate Arts and Sciences. In keeping with the Center's identification of vulnerable populations of children and families, the graduate education initiatives have focused on child welfare and intimate partner violence and have taken three forms. First, two classroom courses, one in the area of child abuse/neglect and the other in the area of intimate partner violence, have been designed to specifically explore the professional role in these areas through academic readings and simulated exercises. Second, field seminars have been developed in combination with interdisciplinary field placements that permit students to explore the way that professionals are presently interacting in the field. Finally, Fordham has developed its own interdisciplinary model based at the Fordham Law School Clinic. Students from all three schools work on interdisciplinary teams supervised by law, social work and psychology faculty with cases involving child abuse and neglect, intimate partner violence, special education and children's disability. A full-time social work professor is housed at the clinic.
