Our research centers and programs present law students an
opportunity to observe multiple perspectives on the law.
The Center takes educational advantage of Buffalo’s location on the Canadian border to provide opportunities for learning about cross-border legal practice. It works closely with our alumni, many of whom are engaged in cross-border legal work in a diverse range of fields, including international commercial transactions, immigration, tax, and international trade, to introduce students to a range of practice opportunities. The Center coordinates its activities with internal and external faculty initiatives and student organizations. It encourages and supports cross-border related research, curricular initiatives and public presentations.
A joint venture of the Law School and the School of Management, the Center for the Study of Business Transactions sponsors courses, research opportunities and distinguished speakers, and encourages collaboration among faculty and graduate students in law and management. The center is dedicated to understanding the realities of the business world by dissecting actual business decisions and examining transactions where law and business intersect.
