The Baldy Center is a focal point for the large group of scholars working on law, legal institutions, and social policy in the University at Buffalo community. The Center has a small staff working with the Director and seven-member Advisory Council to aid and strengthen the larger community of scholars. The Center and Buffalo scholarly community are also closely connected to regional, national, and global sociolegal scholars.

The Baldy Center Advisory Council works with the Director to develop policy for the Center—its vision, mission and operational guidelines. The Council also reviews Baldy programs and makes recommendations for their improvement. Council members are accomplished scholars who represent a variety of disciplinary perspectives in socio-legal studies.
Fellows contribute greatly to the vitality of the Baldy Community. 
Visiting Scholars are guests from other universities, research, and policy institutions, sometimes in other countries, who are conducting law related research at the Baldy Center. They have access to University research resources and participate in workshops and conferences at the Baldy Center, School of Law, and other units of the University. The Baldy Center welcomes expressions of interest from all interested scholars and does its best to accommodate researchers whose interests complement those of UB faculty or address significant problems in law and social policy.
The Baldy Center relies heavily on the work of faculty members who give their time to serve on review committees. These committees review significant proposals for the commitment of valued Baldy resources, including for research grants, conferences and workshops, fellowships, and other initiatives. While we do not publicize membership of individual review committees, we do wish to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of the people who have served on them in recent years. They are listed below.
