In the past 100 years, the connotations of the term "international" have changed dramatically. The ideas we have of concepts such as "international communication" and "global travel" are dramatically different from what those concepts would have meant to our forebears - if they had even thought in such terms. But an international perspective is not new at Fordham Law School. The idea of the interconnectedness of our social and legal systems with those of other Nations is one of the foundational values of our school, and it has shaped our history since we opened our doors 100 years ago.

From our first days, Fordham has been an institution committed to the study of international law. Our founding Dean, Paul Fuller, was one of the preeminent international lawyers of his time. He richly enhanced this dimension of the young law school, seeing the pending globalization with a prescience few could have fathomed in 1905.
