Mar 25, 2021

When it comes to responding to a modern-day crisis – whether it be a global pandemic, extreme weather event or an attempt to overthrow our democracy – lawyers are playing an increasingly critical role.

Eric Stern, a professor at the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity at the University at Albany and Ray Brescia, a professor of law at Albany Law School, formed a cross-disciplinary partnership to better understand this emerging and complex field.

Their new book, “Crisis Lawyering: Effective Legal Advocacy in Emergency Situations,” published through NYU Press, offers key insights, strategies and tactics to lawyers who deal with a range of crisis situations on a regular basis. Eric Stern and Ray Brescia join us.
