Why did you choose UB School of Law? I chose to attend UB because of its accomplished faculty and campus environment. I remember reading through the faculty list, and being amazed by their accomplishments. It is a reflection of their passion for the field and this same passion shines through in their teaching. Complementing the faculty, is an environment that fosters growth. As a University at Buffalo Alumna, I can attest to UB being a place that consists of a great community of faculty, staff and peers that want to help each other achieve success. Personally, I am passionate about oppressed communities (i.e. Kashmir/Palestine) and international relations.
