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, which creates cross-border legal practices, such as international trade and immigration, in which students can explore in the real world. It integrates Canadian legal issues into the Law School by coordinating its activities with those of research groups, faculty initiatives and student organizations. The center’s directors and staff actively encourage and support Canada-related and comparative Canada-U.S. 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.
