To the Members of Our Law School Community,

Welcome to the start of a new academic year! We are excited to greet our new and returning students. O’Brian Hall truly comes to life when our students fill its hallways and classrooms. This year we are joined by 150 new JD students, six LLMs, and 60 new undergraduates in our rapidly expanding BA in Law program.

We also have several new faculty and staff members to add to that energy and enthusiasm. They include seven new faculty members, two new assistant deans in our Student Affairs Office, and a growing staff dedicated to providing our students and our programs with the best support possible.

We have a robust year ahead of us and a full calendar of events, offering a wide variety of programming. We invite you to join us at our Tailgate Party outside UB Stadium on Saturday, September 10th; our Fall Mitchell Lecture on housing policy and reform on Friday, September 16th; and our Students of Color Kickoff Brunch on Saturday, September 24th. For a complete list of scheduled activities, visit our online Events Calendar.

As we embark on a new beginning, I encourage our students to embrace the full law school experience. Participate in a clinic, join a student club, try out for a trial team, and attend one of the many events hosted by our Law Alumni Association. Punctuate your law school education with opportunities outside of the classroom. You’ll gain valuable experience, and you’ll realize the benefits of being part of this extraordinary law school community.

I look forward to embracing the year ahead with each of you.

Dean and Professor of Law
