Colleagues and former students are remembering Professor Charles E. Carr as a thoughtful teacher and an inspiring mentor, someone who pushed students to think deeply about the justice system and work to make it even-handed.
For two decades now, the law school’s Career Services Office and the UB Law Alumni Association have collaborated to match 1L students with mentors who can shed light on the landscape of the legal profession. In turn, mentors have an opportunity to build relationships and connect directly with the next generation of the profession.
With the goal of making the Buffalo Law Review the best it can be, its student editors have made a significant change in how new associates are selected—one that will diversify its membership and encourage a rich mix of voices at the table.
A Message from the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The law school celebrates the bipartisan passage of the Respect for Marriage Act. This legislation, which marks a truly historic moment in the LGBTQ+ fight for equality, guarantees the federal rights, benefits, and obligations of marriages in the federal code for same-sex couples. It also repeals the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, affirms that public acts, records, and proceedings should be recognized by all states, and recognizes the same rights for interracial couples. While we are encouraged by this victory, we also acknowledge that there is much more that needs to be done to ensure the full equality of the LGBTQ+ community. We stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ community and remain committed to advancing justice and working to achieve a fair and equitable society for all.
