Albany Law School’s City Semester Program gives students the opportunity to study outside the Capital Region of New York State by taking a blend of online and field placement courses in cities like New York City, Washington, D.C., and Boston. Through the City Semester program, law students can explore a community where they might want to practice after graduation, take stimulating courses, build their professional network, participate in field work in an area of law that intrigues them, or simply live and work closer to home.
Most students work in government and non-profit settings, engaging in legal representation and assistance to the public. In limited circumstances, students can work in a private law firm, and other private law settings. Enriching opportunities like the City Semester Program make the study of law flexible for Albany Law's students, exposing them to new opportunities, broadening their horizons, and enabling them to build careers in which they can make an impact on their clients and communities.
