Annual Reports

Dear Friend of the Government Law Center:

I am pleased to share with you the 2015 Annual Report for the Government Law Center of Albany Law School, which covers our activities over the last academic year. Some highlights of the report include descriptions of our symposia which covered such topics as: Police-Community Relations, featuring U.S. District Judge Sterling Johnson Jr.; the Separation of Powers between the Executive and Legislative Branches in New York State, with former New York Gov. David Paterson; and the Lessons of Detroit’s Fiscal Woes, keynoted by ex-lieutenant governor Richard Ravitch, and carried out in conjunction with the Institute for Financial Market Regulation.

Our Startup Law Day and Leading a New Era: Women Entrepreneurs programming provided up-and-coming entrepreneurs with free legal consultations and workshops, hard-won advice and heartfelt inspiration.

Annual Report:
September 2014-August 2015

In collaboration with the American Bar Association, the Saratoga Institute on Equine, Racing & Gaming Law convened horseracing and gaming experts from across the US to discuss issues of the day and help strengthen New York’s leadership in these industries.

Our law students immersed themselves in Internship Placements in the Capital District, New York City, and Washington, D.C., experiencing the legal “front lines” at the White House, NYS Legislature, Pfizer, Her Justice, and NYPD.

The work of the GLC would not be possible without our engaged network of staff, students, alumni and faculty who make this programming exciting and enriching, and it is with great gratitude for this support and collaboration that I share the recent work of the GLC with you.

If you have any questions about the report, would like to learn more about our work, or would like to get involved in GLC activities, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

All the Best,

Ray Brescia
Associate Professor of Law and Director, Government Law Center
