View Archives


Professor Christian Sundquist was recently included among the law professors who will comprise the Society of American Law Teachers' Fisher v. Texas response team.

Fisher v. Texas, a closely watched case scheduled to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court this spring, could have sweeping implications for the role of affirmative action in college and university admissions.

On Feb. 14, Professor Sundquist delivered the talk "The Future of Affirmative Action after Fisher v. Texas" at an event presented by the New York State Department of Health Affirmative Action Advisory Committee.

At Albany Law School, Professor Sundquist teaches Evidence; Advanced Evidence; Federal Jurisdiction and Practice; Immigration Law and Policy; Economic Justice, Identities and Markets; and Political and Civil Rights.

He also maintains the blog “Race and the Law” to examine both the role of law in the construction of race and the role of race in the construction of law.

Prior to joining the Albany Law faculty in 2006, Professor Sundquist practiced litigation at Chadbourne & Parke LLP in New York City.

Professor Sundquist earned his J.D. from Georgetown University, where he was senior editor of the Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law and Policy. He earned his undergraduate degree from Carleton College in Northfield, Minn.
