John Feerick of Fordham Law School to Receive ABA Medal
John Feerick, professor and former dean at Fordham University School of Law, will receive the American Bar Association’s highest honor, the ABA Medal, at the Annual Meeting in New York. Respected for his work in ethics and public service, Professor Feerick helped to draft the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The amendment sets out the succession process for the U.S. presidency and establishes procedures for when the president is disabled or the office of the vice president must be filled. In 2011, Professor Feerick received the Section’s Robert J. Kutak Award.
