A little love for Fordham Law School

The US News & World Report is soon to
issue it's Law School
rankings.  This issue is always met with much discussion in my house as
my husband attended the country club Stanford Law School which
pitter-pats back & forth with Harvard for the #1 spot each year. 
(I still have to explain how the 4th amendment actually works when we
watch Law & Order.  He kicks my butt when it comes to leveraged
buys outs but outing him where I can is always good sport.)  ;-)


 I had much more humble beginnings as a
night school law student at Fordham Law School in the heart of New York
City where I was able to keep my job and attend night classes.  I was
also able to act as Summer Clerk to the Hon
Joseph
M. McLaughlin (which is a clerk to the clerks kind of job where the pay
is zero, the experience is priceless and the clerks have remained great
friends and supporters.)


Fordham's night program is about to be ranked as #3 for
evening programs & I couldn't be more thrilled.  Fordham's
commitment to service and leadership through respect and service to
those led shaped and guided me as a young woman trying to make it in
the big city. The education I received there from fellow classmates
& faculty guides me today.


Great to see some good things coming to good people!!


Just a rah rah & a thought today...

Lets' hear it for Fordham Law School!
As lawmakers work to draft privacy legislation, a Supreme Court Judge stands by his notion that such laws could violate First Amendment Rights to free speech, reports MediaPost. Justice Antonin Scalia last week restated an opinion he put forth in January at the American and Talmudic Law conference: "It is silly to think that every single datum about my life is private." Last week's repetition of that statement was in response to the work of Fordham Law professor Joel Reidenberg's students, who, after Scalia's initial remark, prepared a dossier of publicly available personal data about the justice. Scalia wrote: "It is not a rare phenomenon that what is legal may also be quite irresponsible."

Where does Cleveland State rank? By the way, Yale often is rated higher than Harvard or Leland Standford Junior Law School.
