Chapter 2 discusses the impact of World War I and its aftermath on the students and educational program at Fordham Law School and other law schools in New York City. It presents empirical evidence of the religious and ethnic composition of the student body from the 1920s to the 1940s, and it explains the role the Law School played in providing a legal education and the opportunity to achieve middle class respectability to Catholic and Jewish immigrants and their children as well as to women and black Americans, though the latter groups were underrepresented until the last quarter of the twentieth century. The Law School’s third dean, Francis P. Garvan, was concurrently an official in President Woodrow Wilson’s administration who planned and executed the Palmer Raids and the deportation of radical aliens in 1920.
