Albany Law has hosted a session of the Appellate Division, Third Department, each year since 1995. When the first session at the law school was held on Oct. 11, 1995, it marked the first time in more than 85 years that the court had sat at a location other than its home courtroom.
That initial session also marked the beginning of a program whereby the Appellate Division, Third Department, began holding court sessions throughout the 28 counties that make up its geographic jurisdiction.
The session is free and open to the public.
