Fordham Urban Law Center
New York, NY,
The Fordham Urban Law Center is committed to understanding and affecting the legal system's place in contemporary urbanism. Law is central to almost every aspect of the life of 21st-century cities, influencing critical issues as diverse as the structure of local governance, the regulation of the built environment, and social justice in the urban context. In turn, the complexity, density, and diversity of urban life shape the law. The Center is dedicated to: examining the role of the legal system in contemporary urbanism; advancing the scholarship, pedagogy, and practice of urban law; and affecting the most pressing issues facing America’s metropolitan areas.
