The Fordham Urban Law Journal has a strong history of addressing legal and public policy issues affecting urban populations across the nation and throughout the world.  The Journal is the second-oldest publication and most-cited specialty journal at Fordham Law School. The Journal is also the second-most cited public policy law journal edited by
