Fordham Law Class
Tonight I taught a class at Fordham Law School. A few years back, we designed a course on problem-solving courts with the help of a handful of law professors and other smart people. Fordham has generously allowed us to offer the class for the past three years -- first with Val teaching it as an adjunct, and this year with Adam. Adam asked me to lecture about the future of problem-solving justice. It was a good time, mostly because the students seemed thoughtful and well-versed (kudos to Adam, by the way). I think in its own small way the course is an important contribution to the future of problem-solving justice, actually. We've sent the curriculum around to judges and academics around the country and a handful of them have adapted the course in their local law schools. I think this is another sign that our ideas are starting to spread into formerly unchartered waters (in this case, academia).
