Albany Law School’s Government Law Center (GLC) recently appointed Charles Gottlieb ’11 and Dan Gross ’11 to fellowship positions.

As fellows, Gottlieb and Gross will engage in substantive research on a variety of law and policy issues, including renewable energy, land use and environmental law, government reform and government ethics. They will also help to plan a number of conferences and seminars, as well as further develop the GLC's social media presence.

Gottlieb previously worked as a legal intern for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, where he researched various environmental issues and drafted legal memoranda on topics such as the Clean Water Act, land use, dam safety and bulk storage. He also worked for the New York State Attorney General’s Office in the Environmental Protection Bureau where he was able to participate in hearings and draft legal memoranda concerning New York’s Administrative Procedure Act and Environmental Conservation Laws. Gottlieb also worked as a research assistant for Professor Keith Hirokawa, researching tree conservation, storm water management, erosion control measures and green building policy issues. 

Gross previously worked as a summer associate at Coughlin & Gerhardt, where he was responsible for research, analysis and drafting of legal memoranda and presentations in a wide area of subjects, including municipal, election, environmental, employment and corporate law. He has also worked as a clerk at the Schenectady County District Attorney’s Office and as a research assistant for Professor Sheldon Halpern, researching and updating case laws for both U.S. and international intellectual property law. He was the note and comment editor for the Albany Law Review, where he published several articles.

GLC Director and Associate Dean Patricia Salkin said, “The Government Law Center is fortunate to welcome both Dan Gross and Charles Gottlieb as fellows. Their work experience and commitment to myriad issues in law and public policy will help advance the center’s research, scholarship and education.”
