A Budding Relationship

Members of the Affiliation Committee gather with the staff from the University’s Center for International Development. The Center’s relocation to the Albany Law campus was designed to allow the two institutions to capitalize on each other’s expertise, providing new international opportunities for faculty and students, while enhancing rule-of-law in developing countries.

ALBANY, N.Y. (November 22, 2016) — As the fall semester winds down, plans for UAlbany’s affiliation with Albany Law School are in full swing to develop new academic and student service opportunities for students and additional research and grant prospects for faculty.

The Affiliation Steering Committee, a team of faculty and staff from both institutions, is busy exploring efforts to expand access to University training and recreational facilities to Albany Law students and its faculty, capitalize on the relocation of the University’s Center for International Development to the Albany Law campus, and increase programmatic opportunities for students through Master/JD agreements, cross-registration and a cross-campus presence.

UAlbany and Albany Law will also continue to work together through established channels with a focus on strengthening both organizations’ roles in growing the upstate economy, impacting the communities served, and facilitating recruitment of international students.

Many of these efforts will springboard off of foundational work from the past year. “We are encouraged by the progress over the past year, excited by specific achievements, and look forward to expanding an already-rich relationship next year,” said Ann Marie Murray, associate provost for program development and the co-chair of the Affiliation’s Academic and Student Synergies Committee.
