40 Years at the Baldy Center: A Law and Society Hub in Buffalo
The Baldy Center is pleased to be celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. To help commemorate this anniversary, The Baldy Center commissioned Luke Hammill, a Buffalo-based journalist and writer (and UB alumnus) to chronicle the Center’s history, from its foundation as a socio-legal research institute in 1978 to its development into a wide-ranging facilitator of multidisciplinary research, writing and events at UB and beyond.
Our events cover a broad array of topics including but not limited to human rights, courts, environmental governance, legal geography, international trade, intellectual property, social inequality, administrative regulation, state and urban government, the legal profession, family, religion, and cultural understandings of law.
In a city as diverse as Buffalo, you can always find something fun to do, whether it’s taking a leisurely walk in one of our glorious Olmsted-designed parks or taking in a thought-provoking work of art at one of dozens of galleries.
From quaint pubs and cozy corner coffeehouses to stylish dance clubs and eclectic live-music joints, you’re sure to find a scene in one of several distinct districts that suits your style and your budget.
Hiking, skiing, water sports and more: The area’s outdoor scene offers an array of opportunities to be active year-round. We’ve got top-rated golf courses, not to mention Lake Erie and the Niagara River.
