Alumni

GOLD Alumni Group

Alumni who graduated in the last 10 years are members of the Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) program. Led by a group of recent graduates and the Office of Alumni Affairs, GOLD engages recent graduates by providing opportunities for networking, professional support, socializing and volunteer efforts. Today’s GOLD alumni continue Albany Law School’s rich tradition of alumni involvement and support.

We recognize that today’s graduates face unprecedented challenges in the job market. Building a strong network for all alumni is critical to career success, and as a recent graduate, your contribution of time and knowledge to this effort is invaluable. GOLD is an opportunity for you to be involved, give back and get the support and tools you need to advance in your profession.

To stay up to date on GOLD activities and volunteer opportunities, please visit us on Facebook or LinkedIn for current news and information on how to get involved. If you are interested in getting involved with GOLD in your area or have questions, please contact the Office of Alumni Affairs at alumni@albanylaw.edu or call 518-445-3220.


Committee Structure

GOLD has designated committee chairs for each of the major chapter areas: Capital Region, Rochester/Buffalo, Syracuse/Utica, New York City, Binghamton and Washington, D.C.

The chapter chairs will act as a point of contact for the GOLD members in their chapter area, as well as head the planning of networking and social events.
