We Rise Together: The Campaign for Albany Law School

We Rose Together

Albany Law School Celebrates Completing $33M Campaign

At the end of the most successful fundraising campaign in the storied history of Albany Law School, we want to humbly thank and emphatically celebrate the nearly 3,000 donors who combined to raise over $33 million to support us.

All of our gracious, caring, thoughtful, and generous alumni and friends have ensured that Albany Law will continue to make an impact, innovate, and remain independent.

We will continue to Rise Together!


Albany Law School has always been fiercely proud of our independence. The success of the We Rise Together campaign increased our endowment by $7.6M and established 10 new scholarship and endowed funds. This will allow us to continue to attract and retain the best and brightest students and faculty from diverse background. We will continue to prepare lawyers to be positive change agents in their communities.



In today’s rapidly changing world, Albany Law School needs the resources to be flexible and creative in our approach to educating students. The We Rise Together campaign has helped fund innovative programs that are already making a difference.



Our educational philosophy has always embraced the principles of practical experience and service to others. Through the generosity of donors to the We Rise Together campaign we have greatly enriched those opportunities and experiences that are the hallmark of an Albany Law School education. With the additional funding our Government Law Center and Justice Center are having an even greater impact on our community.
