Albany Law School
The only law school in the capital of New York State, Albany Law School is the oldest private, independent law school in North America. New York is a nexus of power and influence, and the state has one of the most complex, comprehensive and well-respected legal systems in the nation. Students gain access to powerful public and private sector influences. Albany Law offers students an innovative, rigorous curriculum taught by a committed faculty. Albany Law gives students abundant opportunities to put theory into practice in rewarding ways. Through the award-winning Law Clinic & Justice Center students represent low-income clients who cannot afford an attorney. The Government Law Center takes advantage of the school's location in New York's capital to offer an array of policy and public-service programs. The Moot Court program, simulation courses, 150 internships and field placements create other opportunities for hands-on learning. Albany Law shares a 54-acre campus with three other colleges. Walkways and green-spaces connect the School with The Sage Colleges, Albany Medical College and the Albany College of Pharmacy. Together, the schools attract students from across the country and around the world whose diverse interests and backgrounds enrich the intellectual - and social - environment for all.
