An impressive group of new instructors and scholars has joined the UB Law faculty as the fall semester gets into full swing. They bring a wide variety of experience and expertise, furthering the law school’s strengths in diversity and interdisciplinary study of the law. And they’re teaching at all levels, including traditional doctrinal courses, legal research and writing, and courses in the law school’s B.A. in Law program.

In addition to the faculty members you’ll meet below, the law school also welcomes Dr. Mihreteab Tsighe Taye, an Ethiopian scholar who’s here through the university’s Scholars at Risk fellowship program; and Dr. Theophilus Edwin Coleman, coming in January as a visiting assistant professor from the University of Johannesburg.

Meet the next generation of faculty as they settle into O’Brian Hall.
