Private law school in Albany, New York State, with a historically close relationship with the New York Court of Appeals.

Albany Law School is a private law school in Albany, New York. It was founded in 1851 and is the oldest independent law school in the nation. It is accredited by the American Bar Association and has an affiliation agreement with University at Albany that includes shared programs. The school is located near New York's highest court, federal courts, the executive branch, and the state legislature.[1]

Albany Law School has a historically close relationship with the New York Court of Appeals.[2] One of the original members of the court, Greene C. Bronson, helped to found the law school.[3][4] Since that time, Albany Law School alumni have been members of the court nine times with two serving as Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals.[2] In addition, the school hosts the Fund for Modern Courts' Hugh R. Jones Memorial Lecture, which is typically given by a current or former member of the court.
