Peer-to-Peer Advocate Program

The Peer-to-Peer Advocate Program is an initiative by the Office of Student Affairs (OSA), designed to foster structured and purposeful relationships between new students and upper-level students.

Our student advocates will provide acceptance, support, encouragement, and guidance to promote healthy development and student success.

The goal of this program is to:

  • Help students confidently navigate their first year of law school and answer student-based questions.
  • Support new students by facilitating their success and well-being.
  • Provide new students an informal opportunity to network within the law school.
  • Foster a welcoming environment.
  • Assist students in creating a healthy work-life balance.

If you are a new student at UB School of Law and have questions on this program OR if you are an upper-level student and wish to be one of our advocates, contact Amy Hayes Atkinson, Director of Student Life at
