The Rural Law Initiative at Albany Law School’s Government Law Center, in partnership with UAlbany’s Center for Human Services Research, is surveying the 5,258 attorneys registered in 42 rural counties.


This project will provide a data-driven, realistic portrait of the state of rural legal practice in New York. The empirical data that will come from this research will have multiple uses for diverse stakeholders, including governments invested in their rural communities, as well as rural lawyers, legal services organizations, and community-based organizations.


If you are a practitioner in rural New York, please fill out this survey now, and share it with your local bar association and others within your legal network. The more of us who fill it out, the better the data.


Deadline: October 19, 2018. The survey closes in two weeks and this is the final push for submissions. Please make your voice count and help us understand the realities of rural practice.


If you have any questions about this survey please be in touch with Taier Perlman, Staff Attorney at the Rural Law Initiative at (518) 445-3263 or
