More than 45 public sector employers, ranging from government agencies to nonprofits, visited Albany Law School to connect with students on Wednesday, Feb. 1, from noon to 1:00 p.m.

Albany Law School students and alumni have a rich connection with public sector service, with more than 30 percent of graduates going on to work at state and federal agencies, municipalities, and nonprofit organizations.

More than 300 current students, through the Pro Bono Program's many initiatives, help thousands of clients each year, including veterans, rural seniors and low-income tax payers. Albany Law also facilitates public sector service through its Law Clinic & Justice Center, as well as a robust field placement program that benefits greatly from the school's proximity to New York's highest court, federal courts, the executive branch and the state legislature.
