Civic Spirit & Fordham Law School’s Feerick Center for Social Justice are honored to co-host a Speaker Series on “Civics & the Law” for the coming academic year.
Our goal is to give students the opportunities to learn from and ask questions with social justice leaders who have dedicated their careers to ensuring the rule of law is upheld in this country.
During the Speaker Series, we will learn with individuals from all aspects of America’s legal system.
