Albany Law School


The Government Law Center (GLC) of Albany Law School is a highly recognized center of excellence. Now in its 38th year, the GLC engages in and promotes interdisciplinary study, research and analysis of government and public interest issues. It examines current issues of government concern and seeks to assist government in addressing and resolving pressing social, legislative, and administrative challenges in ways that are innovative, scalable, efficient and effective, while exposing students, faculty and alumni to opportunities that promote public service.

The oldest center devoted to the study of government law of any American law school, the GLC is a core institution at Albany Law that helps launch our students’ careers in public service and affords them opportunities to impact public policy. One indicator of the GLC’s role in the law school and the nation: prelaw magazine recently listed Albany Law as first in the nation for government law careers.

The next Director of the Government Law Center will be a visionary leader with a proven ability to oversee existing operations while creatively expanding the scope and impact of the work of the Center by building on its strengths, generating critical scholarship and policy papers within the Center’s areas of focus, integrating faculty members in leadership roles, facilitating scholarly output, marshaling resources, exploring and pursuing new sources of funding for Center activities, and forging alliances with public and private institutions outside the law school.

A successful Director must be a leader, have excellent managerial skills and work and communicate effectively with members of the law school faculty, practitioners, government officials, students, and other constituencies of the Center. Candidates must also possess a law degree and have at least 8 years’ experience in a field related to the work of the GLC. The strongest candidates will also demonstrate some or all of the following: extensive experience in the public sector service, an entrepreneurial spirit, strong academic credentials, and the ability to fundraise.

Implementing the GLC mission will require a passion for good government and innovative legal education, as well as a personal sense of vision for the GLC that builds on the past successes while implementing the new strategy.

The Director of the GLC will report directly to the President and Dean of the Law School.

Albany Law School offers competitive pay and an excellent benefits package. Interested applicants should send cover letter, specifying salary requirement, and resume by May 13, 2016 to:
