"The Albany Law School Career & Professional Development Center helped me develop a professional identity. I developed a better sense of how to direct my professional goals through attending workshops dedicated to learning about different legal careers. I strongly believe that the Career Center played a pivotal role in helping me obtain my current position, which I started immediately after graduation. If I had any advice to give new students, it would be to consider making the Career Center a fundamental aspect of your law school experience."
