Baldy Center.

The Baldy Center fosters and supports scholars and affiliated faculty whose work bridges disciplines and contributes to the great and growing mosaic of law and society scholarship. Topics include 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.

UB faculty are invited to create a Baldy Center Account through which to submit, online, a funding proposal in the following areas:

The Baldy Center expects to sponsor several conferences and workshops on topics related to law, legal institutions, and social policy. These may range from small, narrowly focused events aimed at intensive discussion (workshops) to larger events involving more participants and guest presentations (conferences).
The Baldy Center provides modest co-sponsorship support for events sponsored by other units of the University. Co-sponsorship funding decisions are made at the discretion of the Center Director and are dependent on: 
    • Relevance to law, legal institutions and social policy. 
    • Interdisciplinarity. 
    • Amount of support requested.
The Baldy Center awards several fellowships each year to scholars pursuing important topics in law, legal institutions, and social policy. Applications are invited from junior and senior scholars from law, the humanities, and the social sciences.
The Baldy Center supports research by UB faculty members in the broad, interdisciplinary arena of law, legal institutions, and social policy. The Center welcomes both stand-alone and collaborative proposals, as well as proposals aimed at producing baseline research to help garner external funding. Baldy Center Research Grants are available to full-time University at Buffalo faculty members.
