    Welcome to the Fall 2020 edition of The Baldy Center Magazine, our inaugural issue. The Baldy Center, along with many others around the world, shifted to remote work in March 2020. The months since have offered challenges to us all, as we adapt to virtual research, online engagement, and socially distanced lives. The Baldy Center's past and present fellows and grant recipients have demonstrated their resilience throughout, adapting and advancing their important research in these changing and unusual times. We invite you to learn about their cutting-edge work at the intersection of law, legal institutions, and social policy in our virtual magazine.

The Baldy Center Blog and The Baldy Center Podcast share exciting new law and social policy research, and expert perspectives on current events from UB faculty. Our community of scholars is actively engaged in research and writing even if social distancing and travel restrictions have interrupted our normal dynamic of in-person talks, workshops, and conferences for the foreseeable future. All are welcome to read, listen, and comment.


The Baldy Center Podcast and Blog highlight University at Buffalo faculty research and perspectives on current events. We focus on the work of interdisciplinary scholars of law, legal institutions, and social policy who have been associated with The Baldy Center through grants or fellowships. We invite you to listen, read, comment, and subscribe to our listservs.
