Buffalo Law Review

The Buffalo Law Review, published since 1951, publishes 5 issues per year, with each issue containing articles from scholars, practitioners, and judges. The Law Review also publishes member-written pieces on contemporary legal issues.

The Buffalo Law Review prides itself on maintaining the highest level of integrity and objectivity in its selection process. Admission to the Law Review is open to the entire student body. Every year 28 to 32 new members are selected. The first 20 are selected based on first-year grades, a Bluebook exam, and casenote scores. Admission for the remaining 8 to 12 seats is based solely on a combination of casenote and Bluebook exam scores. Members may also be added from students transferring to the School of Law, based on casenote and Bluebook exam scores.

Buddhism, Law & Society

Buddhism, Law & Society is the first interdisciplinary academic journal to focus on Buddhist law and the relationship between Buddhism, law, and society. Buddhism and its many social and legal manifestations are a central area of interest for the journal, as are the state’s legal relations to Buddhist actors, institutions and texts.
