Roundup: Albany Law School in the News

What an incredible two weeks:

Megyn Kelly’s commencement address received significant coverage beforehand (News10 ABC, WGY, Daily Gazette, Talk 1300, etc.) and even more afterward (Business Review, NewsChannel 13, TWC News, CBS 6, Times Union, News10 ABC, The Daily Gazette & others).   “The Kelly File” aired parts of her address Monday on Fox News Channel. The video – which included a great intro about the law school – was shared by Megyn Kelly to her one million-plus followers on Facebook!
