Book cover for Crisis Lawyering

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.

Donald Trump campaigned for the presidency in 2016 with a pledge to bring down illegal immigration, famously blaming undocumented migrants from Mexico for a host of problems, including drugs and crime. In the four years since, how has this rhetoric translated into a wider immigration policy?

Immigration has not been a central theme of the race between Mr. Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, but the future of some of the president’s hard-line policies at the border will be determined by the final results.

Albany Law School professor and director of the Immigration Law Clinic, Sarah Rogerson joins us to discuss.
