Last summer, the schools began discussing a possible affiliation. In a previous article, the Albany Business Review reported that the law school had hired Graham Thornton, an accounting firm, to serve as a consultant through the process. Leaders at the Albany Law School, which is independent, and the public university recently signed a memorandum of intent to continue their discussions of the affiliation process. By the fall, they expect to have the memorandum of agreement finalized.

Read about the early discussions here.

Alicia Ouellette, the dean of the Albany Law School, and Robert Jones, the president of the University at Albany, recently released a letter that stated, “It is clear to us that our students and faculties have much to gain from a stronger affiliation between our two schools.”

In January, Albany Law hired a new dean.

The letter also included some details about the prospective affiliation. The schools will remain separate entities and will be financially independent. Students may receive a number of benefits from an affiliation, such as cost-savings, an expanded course catalog, and dual research and funding initiatives.

In November, the president of the University at Albany was optimistic about the potential affiliation.

Albany Law School enrolls 477 students, whereas the University at Albany lists over 17,000 on its roster.
