9780823239559: Fordham University School of Law: A History

An acute institutional and intellectual history of Fordham Law School that offers keen insight into its rise, decline, and resurgence over the past century.

In this engaging, erudite new book, Robert J. Kaczorowski, Director of the Condon Institute of Legal History, immerses readers in the story of Fordham Law School from the day it opened its doors in 1905 in the midst of massive changes in the United States, in the legal profession, and in legal education. Kaczorowski explores why so many immigrants and their children needed the founding of Catholic law schools in order to enter the legal profession in the first half of the twentieth century. He documents how, in the 1920s and 30s, when the legal profession's elites were actively trying to raise barriers that would exclude immigrants, Dean Wilkinson and the law faculty at Fordham were implementing higher standards while simultaneously striving to make Fordham the best avenue into the legal profession for New York City's immigrants.

Tracing Fordham Law School's history in the context of developments in legal education over the course of the twentieth century, this book pinpoints those factors that produce greatness in a law school and those that contribute to its decline. Fordham University School of Law: A History shows and explains why, prior to World War II, Fordham was one of the leading law schools in America and, along with Columbia, one of the top two law schools in New York City. As one of those leading schools, Fordham was in the vanguard of legal education reform, and its faculty made important contributions to legal scholarship.

Fordham University School of Law: A History also reveals that, after World War II, the Law School suffered a decline, primarily because of inadequate funding resulting from the university's fiscal policies. These policies brought the university's administration into direct conflict with the American Bar Association (ABA) and the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), which consistently observed that the Law School was being starved for funds compared to its peer schools, with the result that peer law schools were improving their quality while Fordham was in decline. The conflict, which did not approach resolution at Fordham until the last quarter of the century, was replicated throughout legal education, especially in Catholic universities yet, this is the first scholarly work to document and explain it.

Kaczorowski's wonderfully contextualized, meticulously documented history of Fordham Law School brings readers right up to the present day and traces how the Law School, with the unprecedented financial support and active involvement of its alumni, is resuming its prior position as one of the nation's leading law schools.

About the Author:


Robert J. Kaczorowski is Professor of Law and Legal and Constitutional History and Director of the Condon Institute of Legal History at Fordham University School of Law.

Review:

"One of the best books ever written on American legal education. Besides documenting the history of Fordham Law, Kaczorowski makes three major contributions to the knowledge of legal education's history. First, it documents why large numbers of late nineteenth and early twentieth-century immigrants and their children needed the founding of Catholic law school. Second, it documents the factors that produce greatness in a law school. Third, it traces a conflict over the funding of law schools. No other work has addressed these issues indepth. Kaczorowski has done a remarkable job." -- -William Nelson New York University
