The Center for Law & Policy Solutions — a collaboration among the Rockefeller Institute of Government, the Government Law Center at Albany Law School, the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at the University at Albany, and the University at Buffalo School of Law — examines how ordinary people and communities are affected by law and policy to help policymakers, community organizers, and the public develop practical solutions to pressing public policy issues.
How are state courts interpreting immigration laws? How can communities build trust among civilians and police? How is New York’s Raise the Age law being implemented? How are local law enforcement and courts dealing with the opioid crisis?
These are the kinds of questions that the researchers at the Center for Law & Policy Solutions are working to answer. Focusing on a single issue at a time, they let the evidence point the way to effective policy solutions.
