Fordham Law Joins with ACLU and Law Firms to Challenge Racially Discriminatory Policing


Amid a national reckoning against police violence and racial injustice, law school clinics, and law firms have signed on to participate in a new campaign by the ACLU of Louisiana to dismantle racist policing in a single state: Louisiana. The ACLU initiative, Justice Lab: Putting Racist Policing on Trial, enlists law school clinics and leading law firms across the nation to bring a wave of litigation challenging racially-motivated stops, seizures, and use of force in Louisiana.

“We’re thrilled that our law students will be assisting others whose ultimate goal is to expose and end racist policing. Fordham Law School’s Federal Litigation Clinic has long been committed to holding our critical institutions accountable when they fail in their mission to serve and protect society’s most vulnerable,” said Michael Martin, the Clinic’s co-director.
