The Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law was founded twenty years ago at Fordham University School of Law as the Financial, Securities & Tax Law Forum until 1999, when Fordham Law School's faculty unanimously voted to designate it as an honor journal. The Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law name was adopted to reflect this change. The Journal further began publishing at least three times a year at this time. The Journal is the most cited specialty journal in banking in finance[1] and has been cited by the Supreme Court of the United States[2]

First year students are given the opportunity to "write on" to the journal in May as part of the school-wide journal writing competition. Published works are made available on HeinOnline,[3] FLASH,[4] and WestLaw.[5] In addition, the Journal works in conjunction with the Fordham Corporate Law Center to host an annual symposium featuring guest speakers on a relevant topic of corporate and financial law. Together, the Journal and Corporate Center also host the A.A. Sommer Jr. Lecture, the Albert A. DeStefano Lecture, and the Fred Dunbar Lecture in Law and Economics. The Journal also maintains a blog[6] for additional commentary on corporate and financial legal topics.
