Law Professor to Speak about 25th Amendment
Fordham University School of Law professor John D. Feerick helped draft the 25th amendment to the U.S. Constitution 50 years ago. The amendment sets forth the succession process for the U.S. presidency in the event the President is no longer able to fulfill the duties of the office. Feerick is recognized as the pre-eminent scholar on the subject; he received the American Bar Association’s highest honor, the ABA Medal, for his work.
Professor Feerick will be speaking at The Osborn in conjunction with the weekly News & Views program hosted by Sterling Park, the Independent Living community at The Osborn. It will take place on Monday, February 26 at 10:30 am in the Sterling Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. To RSVP, call 914-925-8218 or email RSVP@theosborn.org.
“Professor Feerick is that rare combination of a lawyer who has had enormous achievement in public service, private practice and in legal education,” said American Bar Association President Linda A. Klein. “He is the embodiment of the citizen lawyer. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ratification of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, Professor Feerick’s contributions to that effort cannot be minimized. Throughout his distinguished career as a labor lawyer, legal educator and public servant, his unimpeachable integrity and brilliance has made him a giant in the legal community and an invaluable aide to our government and our democracy.”
