View Archives


The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies—a leading think tank on communities of color and public policy—has identified Albany Law School Professor Christian Sundquist as one of the top law professors in the United States focusing on technology, innovation, and race.

As such, Professor Sundquist was invited to participate in a workshop this past January with 15 of his colleagues from across the nation. The roundtable, convened by the Joint Center during the Association of American Law Schools’ annual meeting in San Francisco, Calif., explored the anticipated effects of technological shifts in culture and the economy for communities of color.

The Joint Center said it planned to use the discussion, and others like it, to help chart its policy agenda.

Professor Sundquist is the Director of Faculty Research and Scholarship at Albany Law School, where he teaches: Evidence; Advanced Evidence; Technology, Privacy and the Law; Immigration Law and Policy; Criminal Procedure; and several courses on social inequality. He received the law school’s Faculty Award for Excellence in Scholarship in May 2016.
