Fordham Law School’s Urban Law Center and the New York City Bar Association’s Committee on New York City Affairs will convene a two-night symposium to examine the Bloomberg Administration’s use of legal tools in implementing several of its signature initiatives. Distinguished professionals and scholars in the fields of law, education, health, and public policy will analyze and discuss the mechanisms chosen, legal issues addressed, the obstacles confronted, and the effectiveness of the Administration’s strategies. The symposium will also explore the lessons learned that could impact future mayoral administrations and seek to define the national implications of the Bloomberg Administration’s legal legacy.
