At the core to the value we offer is ensuring that our students are prepared to excel in a range of environments—from the nation’s largest law firms to their small and mid-size counterparts, from government agencies to judges’ chambers, and in a range of for-profit and not-for-profit settings, including academia and other areas of practice and employment. And a Fordham Law School education offers students a broad array of professional opportunities, preparing them for traditional roles in public and private law practice as well as careers in business, media, education, and government.
To realize our commitment to value, Fordham Law School will do the following:
- Expand financial aid with new fundraising—with particular emphasis on enhancing the enrollment and participation of students traditionally underrepresented in the profession—and enhance our loan forgiveness programs to support the affordability of a Fordham Law School education.
- Strengthen the financial foundation of Fordham Law School to ensure long-term sustainability and growth by seeking new sources of revenue and ensuring that we continue to use our resources efficiently and wisely.
- Advise and guide our students for successful careers in an increasingly broad range of settings, ensuring that our students understand the wealth of career paths across the country—and beyond.
