Fordham Law School welcomed 126 LL.M., 17 M.S.L., and 4 S.J.D. candidates this fall semester. The students come from 34 countries and bring a wealth of talent and diversity to the Law School. The 147 new students join the approximately 65 LL.M., 12 M.S.L., and 15 doctoral students who are continuing their studies.
The Master of Laws students are enrolled in one of the School’s eight areas of specializations, and the Master of Studies in Law students are enrolled in either of the two specializations: corporate compliance or fashion law.
The new doctoral candidates received their primary legal education in Iceland, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Turkey. Their scholarly work ranges from a call for reform of the sponsorship system for foreign workers in the Gulf States to the corporate governance implications of inversion mergers; from rights-based claims to the city in India, South Africa, and Lain America to the finalization of arbitral awards in Turkey. The incoming S.J.D. students will be supervised by Associate Dean Nestor Davidson, Professor Jennifer Gordon, Professor Sean Griffith, and Professor Thomas Lee.
