Fordham Law Welcomes New Class of Graduate Students


Fordham Law is pleased to announce that 81 new students are joining graduate programs this semester.

Fordham’s LL.M. programs welcome 49 students to one of eight specializations and 32 students who have enrolled in the M.S.L. program in Corporate Compliance. This new cohort joins the 129 LL.M., 62 M.S.L., and nine doctoral students who are continuing their studies, for a total of 281 graduate students. The new graduate students come from more than 20 countries and often have significant work experience in their respective areas of expertise.

Fordham Law provides incoming LL.M. students with a robust orientation program that includes introductory lectures on the U.S. legal system, a study tips panel, a professor panel, a welcome reception at which students have the opportunity to meet Dean Matthew Diller and other members of the senior administration of the Law School, a bowling night, a dessert social, and small dinner parties with graduate program administrators.

“Our graduate students enrich our community in so many ways, both inside and outside of the classroom,” says Assistant Dean Toni Jaeger-Fine, who leads the graduate programs. “Having worked with graduate students for more than 20 years, I remain deeply impressed by their courage, passion, and dedication to their craft.”
