This year, SUNY Buffalo Law School is offering admitted international students $18,000 in scholarships, effectively allowing them to pay very close to the resident tuition rate. Those scholarships, combined with the low cost of living in Buffalo and our strong curriculum in areas like cross-border legal studies and international law, make us an attractive option for students in Mexico. We are also one of the few U.S. law schools offering a Two-Year JD degree for foreign-trained lawyers. If you'd like to learn more, stop by tomorrow. Space is limited, so please let me know if you plan on attending.
