In the aftermath of a very difficult period for the conscience and reputation of the legal profession, the Fordham Stein Award was endowed for the purpose of providing the profession and society with a sterling example of professional integrity and leadership. The mandate was to search the profession nationwide each year and to select a person whose selfless contribution to the public good exemplified the quiet performance of thousands of others whose dedicated work adds life, vigor and substance to our democracy. In 1985, Fordham Law School awarded the Stein Award to Judge Edward Weinfeld. This article describes the award process and criteria and the reasoning behind choosing Judge Weinfeld.
