Joseph P. Esposito, BA '75

In 2015, Joseph P. Esposito, BA ’75, established a fund to provide undergraduate scholarships to students from the Greater Washington, DC area who enroll in the UB College of Arts and Sciences.

Joseph Esposito is a partner with the law firm Hunton and Williams in Washington, DC, focusing on complex business litigation. While earning his BA magna cum laude from the University at Buffalo, he served as city editor of the Spectrum and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He earned his JD from the New York University Law School. He is an elected member of the American Law Institute. Esposito established the scholarship because while the Washington, DC area has the second largest number of UB alumni outside New York State, it is not well known to prospective college students there. He credits his UB education with his career success and wants the scholarship to help to bring UB to the attention of Washington area high schools and students, encouraging deserving students to apply.
