Interesting Updates and Articles from this Week:

~This week we introduced our first-year students to the BLOG.
Albany Law School strives to provide a rich experience for its students, who come to law school for different reasons and with many different goals.

With more than 30 student organizations, there is a place for everyone. Many student groups work for social change through public forums, publish articles or sponsor and host well-known speakers. Others may donate their time for legal research for a group in need, solicit pro bono legal help, or raise funds for a specific cause.”    To the members of the Class of 2018: We look forward to meeting you in August!
