Student lawyers work under the supervision of skilled faculty to engage in practical legal thinking and ethical practice through client representation, policy development, and effective problem-solving work in experiential settings.
Our Practicum courses provide immersive learning experiences for law students through in-field work assisting and observing practicing attorneys, followed up with weekly classroom work with a professor, exploring the law and reflecting on the process of becoming an attorney.
A long tradition of providing pro bono services to the Western New York community and beyond, our pro bono work helps low- and middle-income individuals and community organizations navigate a wide variety of the legal issues that confront them.
The practice of law has become increasingly globalized with attorney and client often located in different countries. As a law school located within minutes of an international border, the University at Buffalo School of Law keenly recognizes the value of studying law in another country.
