Access to Justice (A2J) at Fordham Law School
Join the A2J Initiative at Fordham Law for a screening of clips from Rikers: An American Jail, the powerful documentary from acclaimed journalist Bill Moyers. There will also be a panel discussion about the future of the jail, including the hard choices to be confronted and the next essential steps to be taken.
The A2J Initiative at Fordham Law focuses the collective public service energy of the School to deliver on the promise of equal justice, which lies at the core of our concerns as a service-oriented institution and is the foundational bedrock of our constitutional society, through teaching, direct service, and scholarship, research and advocacy.
