Feerick Center for Social Justice

Fordham Law School’s Feerick Center for Social Justice released a report, Public Schools, Public Oversight: Principles and Policy Recommendations During COVID-19 and Beyond, which focuses on NYC high school admissions to highly-selective screened programs.

Please note that as of March 11, 2020, all Fordham University sponsored events on campus and off campus are cancelled due to COVID-19. All Feerick Center for Social Justice events and activities are suspended at this time, including: the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island CLARO Programs; LEEAP Ed. Project; and Volunteer Lawyers for Veterans Program. Likewise, events organized by the Feerick Center for Social Justice in connection with the New York State Attorney Emeritus Program have also been cancelled.

Fordham Law's Feerick Center for Social Justice works with students, alumni, lawyers, and community volunteers to connect low-income New Yorkers to the legal resources they need and cannot afford. We train law students and others to engage in social change efforts.

Fighting Poverty Through Partnerships

The Feerick Center for Social Justice promotes the rights and addresses the problems facing marginalized and low-income New Yorkers through the creation of strategies to reform policies, educate, and provide assistance to right wrongs.

Highly regarded for its efficacy and dedication to combating inequities, the Center works with wide-ranging networks to rally partners in the legal community and beyond to respond to the challenges of those in need.

Fordham Law faculty and students involved at the Center collaborate with the city's nonprofit, legal services, and public sectors to create long-term innovative solutions critical to real change.

We accomplish our mission through

  • A variety of pro bono and volunteer programs
  • Academic courses, including a dedicated Social Justice Clinic
  • Innovative social justice initiatives
  • Legal and policy research
  • A series of conferences and lectures

Join us in achieving our mission. Get involved in our programs and support the Center.
