Albany Law School will be closed today until 4pm due to the weather.
President and Dean Penelope (Penny) Andrews, a
South African who met Nelson Mandela, and whose 2001 book, “The
Post-Apartheid Constitutions: Perspectives on South Africa’s Basic Law” (co-edited with Professor Stephen
Ellmann), features a foreword by Mandela, was called on by newspapers, radio
and television to describe her experiences and thoughts on the man whom she
calls a “giant.”
"His story is about how one man's struggle can
persuade others to pursue justice and equality," she told one
“Everyone could claim him as their own symbol of justice,” she told another reporter.
Below are links to some of her media appearances
