Albany Law School's award-winning Clinic & Justice Center, established in 1981, combines theory and practice through its in-house public interest law firm, providing free legal services to eligible clients in the Capital Region. In a typical academic year, the Clinic recruits more than 200 students for clinic projects, representing hundreds of clients and assisting many more individuals and organizations through technical assistance and community education activities. The Clinic's mission is to provide high quality legal representation and to teach students to be skilled professionals who practice law with compassion and sensitivity to individual client needs.
In the in-house Clinic, students represent real clients in actual cases.
In Field Placements, students work onsite with attorneys in the government or private sector.
