The Law School is marking its 125 anniversary as a path-breaking
provider of legal education in Western New York and
nationwide. Join us as we recognize the many prominent people
and events that have helped forge our path.
Our 125th Anniversary called for an icon that was symbolic to
Buffalo and the law. We chose the statue "Contemplation of Justice"
that sits to the left of the front steps of the United States
Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. The statue was designed
by James Earle Fraser in 1933, yet Fraser's most recognized work
may be the 1913 five-cent coin known as the "Buffalo Nickel."
