Fordham Public Interest

Any Fordham students/graduates recommend Fordham for public interest, policy, or education law?

Fordham is really supportive of public interest students. We have an organization for just about every type of nonprofit work you might be interested in, and all are centrally headquartered through the Public Interest Resource Center (PIRC). Fordham also has Stein Scholars, which you can read about here: http://law.fordham.edu/public-interest- ... r/7155.htm and the Leitner Center, dedicated to international human rights work. http://www.leitnercenter.org/ You can get a $5,000 Leitner grant to spend a summer doing legal work abroad. I am happiest that the school has helped me get summer funding through FSSF, which hosts Fordham's annual charity auction. I had a lot of fun taking part in that!

I will let others speak to policy and education law, but I have been very happy with the PI offerings here, and I have a summer internship I secured through involvement in one of our student organizations.
