Mission Statement

Mission Statement

It is the mission of Albany Law School to be a nationally recognized center of learning and teaching for students, faculty, alumni, the bench and bar, other professions, and local, state, national, and global communities while retaining its historic ties to the state and the region. 

At the center of this mission is the law school's commitment to provide an education to its students that prepares them for intelligent, creative and ethical participation in the legal profession by offering opportunities to develop habits of critical analysis, understanding of theory, acquisition of professional skills, a deep commitment to justice and service, and an appreciation of the dignity and responsibility that accompany membership in the profession. 

In carrying out this mission, Albany Law School strives to foster an environment in which cultural and multi-disciplinary diversity is appreciated and supported as enhancements to learning and to the legal profession.​
