About this Journal
The Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law
was originally established as a student organization in 1995, and has since grown to become one of the premier student-edited business law journals in the country. Executives, practitioners, regulators, judges and academics rely on the FJCFL to keep abreast of leading corporate law scholarship, novel legal theories, and the emerging issues that are dominating current events. Our articles, notes, comments, essays, and symposia cover the financial, securities, banking, bankruptcy and tax practice areas. Academic journals, law reviews, the financial press, and even the Supreme Court have cited the FJCFL.
FJCFL staff members fully immerse themselves in cutting-edge issues of corporate law, edit the manuscripts of professionals and fellow students, and advance the discourse surrounding business law topics with new scholarship. The FJCFL encourages all of its members to submit Notes for publication and publish pointed replies to emerging issues in business law through the Fordham Corporate Law Forum blog. Our Editors actively assist students as they navigate topics in the legal and business law landscapes.
The FJCFL not only boasts a tremendous reputation for its publications, but also facilitates ongoing dialogue on the field’s most topical issues in corporate and financial law through its many events. Working together with the Fordham Corporate Law Center, the FJCFL assembles truly distinguished professors, practitioners, policy-makers and members of the judiciary to discuss the most topical issues of the day. Each year, the FJCFL is proud to co-sponsor a number of events, including an annual Symposium, and Fordham's annual A.A. Sommer, Jr. and Albert A. DeStefano Lectures.
