Albany Law School is a small, private school located in the heart of New York state’s capital that has educated legal leaders since 1851.
As the oldest law school in New York, the institution offers students an innovative, rigorous curriculum taught by a committed faculty. It has an affiliation agreement with University at Albany that includes shared programs, and access for students from both schools to learn at one another’s campuses. Several nationally recognized programs—including the Government Law Center and the Albany Law Clinic & Justice Center—provide opportunities for students to apply classroom learning to real situations. Students have access to New York’s highest court, federal courts, the executive branch and the state legislature.
With approximately 10,400 alumni practicing across the country and several continents, Albany Law’s graduates serve as a vital community and resource for the school and its students. Visit
