Many of our faculty members hold doctorates in areas other than law, bringing the insights of such disciplines as anthropology, sociology and psychology to their research and teaching. Their innovative and thoughtful scholarship reflects this rich and diverse background and enriches the classroom experience beyond measure.
Visiting Clinical Assistant Professors are proficient lawyers
chosen from a nationwide search, who have come to share their
passion for social justice and practice experience with law school
students and clinic clients.
Our Law Faculty’s scholarship is published widely, bringing a wealth of practice and policy experience to SUNY Buffalo Law. Visit their individual profile pages to learn more about each faculty member's scholarship.
