Chapter 7 recounts how Dean Joseph M. McLaughlin accelerated and improved upon the Law School’s modernization initiated by Dean Mulligan. He began the transformation of the Law School into the mainstream of legal education by adopting a more academic orientation of the Law School’s mission and program and adopting many pedagogical reforms and administrative reforms. For example, Dean McLaughlin and separating the Law School’s funding raising from that of Fordham University. The university retarded the Law School’s development by diverting its revenues to subsidize the university’s other divisions. This led to a conflict in 1973 between Fordham University and the ABA and AALS over the university’s financial relationship to the Law School that continued to 1987.
