Albany Law School will delay opening until 11am due to the weather.
The Government Law Center of Albany Law School was established in 1978 to promote interdisciplinary study and research in government and the problems facing government; to introduce law students to methods of policy analysis and to public service; and to serve as a resource to all levels of government in the resolution of specific problems.
The Center serves as
a bridge between government and academia, providing diverse services to
government leaders, public officials, students and the community. We conduct research and studies, sponsor conferences and symposia, and offer a number of training programs. These activities may be at the request of governmental entities or on the Center's own initiative.
The Government Law Center focuses on legal aspects of important public policy issues that assist governments in meeting new challenges. The Center's studies often report on recommendations for legal and policy reform based upon a national and international comparative research methodology. Through cooperative efforts with other academic institutions, the nonprofit sector, the private sector and governmental entities, the center has created both an environment for the open exchange of ideas and a laboratory for innovation.
An Advisory Board,
comprised of the Albany Law School faculty and leaders from the
public, private and non-profit sectors, assists the GLC's Director in
charting future initiatives. The center draws upon the expertise of
faculty from Albany Law School and other academic institutions who
participate in a number of the center's projects and programs.
Government Lawyers in Residence enhance the center by
bringing a wealth of experience to the center and working together with
post-graduate fellows and staff attorneys on myriad projects. Project
coordinators lead special programs housed at the center. The center also
benefits from the involvement of law students and members of the Albany
Law School faculty.
