Fordham University School of Law’s history with the Twenty-Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution began with an article in the Fordham Law Review in 1963. Just one month before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Fordham Law Review published “The Problem of Presidential Inability—Will Congress Ever Solve It?” by John D. Feerick ’61 (Dean, Fordham Law School, 1982-2002). President Kennedy’s death spurred Congress to fill the gaps and ambiguities in the succession procedures.
