Professor Clayton Gillette will deliver "Insolvency: What Can a Municipality Do?" for the 2011 Edwin L. Crawford Lecture on Municipal Law, to be held at Albany Law School on Friday, April 8, at 4 p.m. in Room 200.

Gillette is the Max E. Greenberg Professor of Contract Law at New York University School of Law, where he concentrates on local government law and commercial law. He is the author of Local Government Law: Cases and Materials and Payment Systems and Credit Instruments, as well as numerous articles.

With many municipalities, in New York State and the nation, facing unprecedented fiscal problems, Professor Gillette's lecture will provide a timely examination of the causes of these financial problems and the remedies that might be available to municipalities.

The event, hosted by Albany Law School's Government Law Center (GLC), is free and open to the public. For more information, or to register, contact 518-445-2329.

The GLC established the Edwin L. Crawford Lecture on Municipal Law in 1996 to honor the memory of Edwin L. Crawford, former executive director of the New York State Association of Counties. Each year, the program educates and promotes dialog on important and timely issues affecting local government.

The New York State Association of Counties, the Association of Towns of the State of New York, the New York State Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials, and Saratoga Associates have provided additional support for the event.
