School of Law

Program Description

The School of Law at the University at Buffalo is one of only a few law schools located on an international border. We offer a myriad of cross-border learning opportunities, including a cross-border legal studies concentration. The National Jurist recently recognized our law school as a top tier school for its outstanding value, and as a member of an honor roll of law schools that deliver practical training. In addition to being acknowledged by On Being a Black Lawyer as a top school for black students, Super Lawyer's magazine ranked us 48, out of 180 law schools in the country that produce "Super Lawyers".
