The University at Buffalo Law School has been chosen as the newest member of the prestigious legal honor society known as The Order of the Coif, according to a press release from the school’s News Center. The history of the group dates back to medieval England.

The law school at the University at Buffalo is the only school chosen for membership at the group following a long application process.

Some of the requirements for becoming a member of the group include a dedicated faculty, superior legal curriculum, courses covering basic and new areas of law, multiple co-curricular activities and much more.

“We are delighted to take our place in the Order of the Coif alongside other highly regarded law schools,” said UB Law Dean Makau W. Mutua. “This recognition is an affirmation of the star quality of our faculty, the hard work of our staff and the high standards of our students. We are dedicated to educating new lawyers who are both deeply grounded in legal theory and conversant in the professional skills they will need in practice. We are gratified that our commitment to the best educational experience for our students is being acknowledged in such a public way.”

As a member of the group, the top 10 percent of the school’s graduating class will be made members in the Order of the Coif annually. University at Buffalo Law School was founded in 1887 and is the only law school within the State University of New York system.
