Initiatives and Resources


During the year, through the Saratoga Institute, the Government Law Center offers conferences, educational seminars and continuing legal education programs on commonly encountered legal issues to inform industry professionals. 

It also facilitates stakeholder conversations and meetings, through fora such as a cyber lunch series, where private and public attorneys have an opportunity to discuss shared legal issues, in person or online in real time, and offering law students a chance to connect with these experienced professionals. It also publishes scholarly papers addressing legal and policy matters of the day on the institute’s website as a resource to attorneys and professionals.

The Saratoga Institute on Racing and Gaming Law is a program within the Government Law Center of Albany Law School. Founded in 1978, the Government Law Center provides a forum for the discussion of the legal aspects of public policy reform. The Government Law Center has a national reputation for providing educational experiences of distinction and comprehensive analyses on major law and public policy issues around a wide range of topics, including economic development and the law, innovations in governance, and law and social innovation.​
