100 Years of Women

On September 12, 1918, the Fordham Law faculty voted to admit women to the Law School. Ten days later, the Law School’s customary start-of-term ad in The New York Times announced "courses open to women." In the week before classes convened, eight women signed up to study alongside 312 men.

During the 2018–2019 school year, this 100th anniversary of women at Fordham Law is a great opportunity to recognize our amazing women alumni, faculty, and students. Help us celebrate this moment with the centennial of women being admitted to Fordham Law!
