Alumni of Fordham Law School at Sullivan & Cromwell practice within a broad range of areas under our General Practice (corporate) and Litigation groups in both our domestic and international offices. Two S&C partners are alumni of the Law School: William Farrar (Fordham ’92) is a member of the Firm’s Investment Management, Corporate and Finance, and Financial Services groups; Glen Schleyer (Fordham ’98) is a member of the Firm’s Corporate and Finance, Financial Services, Executive Compensation and Corporate Governance groups.
 
The practice areas of Fordham Law associates at S&C include Antitrust Litigation, Appellate Litigation, Restructuring, Criminal Defense and Investigations, Corporate and Finance, and Mergers and Acquisitions. Several S&C Fordham alumni have clerked, including three at the federal appellate level.
 
In keeping with Fordham Law’s focus on public service—the class of 2018 performed nearly 151,000 hours of public interest work during their time at Fordham Law—many alumni are actively involved in the Firm’s pro bono practice. In 2018, the Firm's lawyers and staff devoted more than 63,000 hours to a range of pro bono activities. Recent matters include representing an LGBT rights activist from Guinea in his claim for asylum on the grounds that he would face persecution on account of his political opinion and perceived sexual orientation; advising Global Health Corps, a non-profit organization dedicated to mobilizing a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity, on enterprise legal risk management issues; representing indigent defendants in federal criminal cases through the Criminal Justice Act Panel; assisting two sisters who are nationals of Honduras in filing for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status ("SIJS"); and representing an eight-year-old boy classified with autism in an administrative hearing seeking certain special education services.
 
Over the past three years, five Fordham Law students have joined us as summer associates. We hope you will take the time to learn more about Fordham alumni, our presence at the law school and how to apply on these pages. We hope to see you on campus.
