UB Law Cares

Outside the virtual classroom, Prof. Christine Bartholomew and her family have made and distributed over 100 face masks to essential workers, neighbors, law students and UB colleagues.

"We were looking for a way to help out during this hard time. The Buffalo community has given so much to our family. This was one small thing we could do."


Alumni & Giving

Emergency Students Assistance Fund
Emergency Student Assistance Fund

Our Emergency Student Assistance Fund helps students through emergencies that might otherwise disrupt their progress towards earning their UB School of Law degree. Established and currently maintained by a generous grant from AccessLex Group, Inc. and the  generous donations of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the legal community, these funds offer financial assistance in circumstances beyond the student’s control such as death in the family, accident, loss of property, loss of income, health emergency, or other unanticipated educational expenses.
