The November-December issue of CAPITAL magazine spotlights how Albany Law School has aligned its curriculum so that its students gain the skills employers are looking for when hiring law school graduates. 

“[Employers] expect our students to
have practical experience and competence
in oral and written communication,
legal research, problem solving,
negotiation, and other skills essential to
effective practice,” reads the article, quoting Alicia Ouellette,
associate dean for academic affairs
and intellectual life. “To meet these
demands, we offer students the opportunity
to practice under faculty supervision
in our law clinics, more than 150
field placements, and a newly formed
semester-in-practice program. We are
also working to integrate practicums,
problem-based courses, and capstone
courses throughout our curriculum.
These opportunities allow our students
to apply their classroom lessons to the real world and
to develop the legal skills necessary for success in the
legal marketplace.”
