Law School Clinical Program Fund

Our Clinical Legal Education program delivers access to justice while teaching UB law students to be excellent, ethical, and engaged lawyers. #UBLawResponds student attorneys work closely with skilled supervising attorneys to serve clients and advocate fiercely for those that may not have the resources for private legal counsel. The Law School Clinical Program Fund supports students in this pursuit by helping to cover the clinics’ general business expenses, allowing faculty, staff, and students to focus on what is important – their clients.

Student attorneys put learning to practice, facing cutting-edge issues and complex matters in which creativity and innovation play key roles to serve clients effectively. These hands-on experiences produce practice ready graduates who share a passion for assisting their community.

From our newest clinics: the Community Engagement Legal Clinic, Criminal Justice Advocacy Clinic, Civil Rights and Transparency Clinic, and e-Law Center Clinic, to our storied Environmental Advocacy Clinic, Mediation Clinic, and Family Violence and Women’s Rights Clinic (that recently celebrated its 30th anniversary), our impact is clear. The Class of 2022 alone provided over 22,000 hours of legal assistance, bringing justice and equity to the Western New York community and beyond.

“Learning by doing is at the heart of what the School of Law's Clinical Legal Education department does every single day. All our clinics are interactive, immersive, and inclusive. Our students learn from some of the best clinicians in the country.” - Prof. Kim Diana Connolly, Director of Clinical Legal Education.
