the law school remembers Justice Ginsburg

Remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

"We will forever remember her visit to Buffalo on our first day of classes last fall. Her presence had a profound impact on our entire law school community – a true reflection of her impact on our nation. While we mourn her passing, her voice remains with us as we continue the fight for justice inspired by her perseverance and passion."
- Dean Aviva Abramovsky
