The Government Law Network

The Government Law Network


The Government Law Network is  an effective, statewide public affairs network that could broaden public discourse on issues of mutual interest and allow members to interact with each other and have an impact on the Government Law Center's future role.

Membership in the Government Law Network�the only such network in New York�offers significant benefits, including:

  • Invitations to special events, including "member-only" networking breakfasts featuring major leaders in government. At previous events, members have had the opportunity to talk with the New York State Comptroller, agency commissioners, and counsel to the legislative leadership.
  • Access to programs developed by the GLC, the respected Albany "think tank." Network members receive announcements of every GLC event on law and policy topics such as aging, racing and gaming, environment, administrative law, government ethics, lobbying law, land use, and citizen oversight of law enforcement.
  • Opportunities to order many of the GLC's groundbreaking reports, conferences and seminar proceedings, and law day handbooks free of charge. Recent publications have covered topics on aging law, racing and gaming law, land use, judicial reform, disaster preparedness, procurement law, and energy issues.
