The law clinics at Fordham’s School of Law got a nod from the Chronicle of Higher Education this past week:

The Securities Arbitration Clinic, at Fordham’s law school, recently won $23,000 in compensatory damages and $44,000 in punitive damages for an elderly couple who had been defrauded out of $25,000. Their broker had “basically stolen” their money by making phony investments with it, says Paul B. Radvany, a clinical associate professor who directs the clinic. Ten students juggle about a dozen cases there now.
