This fund helps deliver access to justice while teaching UB law students to be excellent, ethical and engaged lawyers.
At UB, our Clinical Legal Education program offers diverse and sophisticated practice opportunities to upper-class and LL.M. students working closely with skilled supervising attorneys. Our students learn from some of the best clinicians in the country to interact with clients and work on various matters in the courtroom, legislature, agencies, boardroom, and beyond.
Our clinics represent the rights of the most vulnerable in our communities who would not otherwise have access to justice. Our clients have included cancer patients receiving treatment, minimum wage workers, environmental organizations seeking justice, and many more. Under the guidance of our skilled faculty and staff, our students stand up in court, stand before legislatures, or speak to other decisionmakers to fight for the rights of these clients.
In addition to educating the next generation of social justice, pro bono champions, we make sure that our students emerge with deep experience in professionalism and modern lawyering skills, as we empower students to be successful and fight fiercely for justice.
