The Buffalo Law Experience

From legal competitions to our 125 anniversary celebration, SUNY Buffalo Law School has much to offer students, faculty and the community. Below are some recent highlights.


The real-world value of diversity and the challenge of lifelong learning were the dual themes of the Law School’s Students of Color 25th Anniversary Dinner.

The Law School’s OUTLaw student organization gathered to celebrate a year of solidarity and accomplishment, and to take stock of what some called “the next hurdle for gay families in New York State.”


Three SUNY Buffalo Law students made good use of their passports this summer, as they flew off to work at legal internships in Europe and Central and South America.


A new Law School practicum is putting students’ legal skills to use on behalf of an underserved group of clients: federal offenders who are completing their sentences and finding their way in life after prison.

Class of 2016

The Class of 2016 began their journey at UB’s Center for the Arts, kicking off a week-long calendar of orientation events.


Two dozen law students spent their summer in not-for-profit agencies, courts, and prosecutors’ and public defenders’ offices, funded by fellowships that made it all possible.


“A robust exchange of ideas” is the guiding principle behind an ambitious series of initiatives planned by the Buffalo Criminal Law Center, SUNY Buffalo Law School’s platform for in-depth study of U.S., international and comparative criminal law.


It’s said that the best way to learn is to teach, and that principle was on display in the Letro Courtroom as international students in the Law School's master of laws program presented a primer on comparative legal systems.


Nearly 1000 loyal supporters of SUNY Buffalo Law gathered for an evening of fun and surprises to celebrate the kick-off of a year-long 125th anniversary celebration.
