The Buffalo Law Experience

From our legal competitions to our hand-on skills program, the School of Law has much to offer students, faculty and the community. Below are some recent highlights.

A handful of UB School of Law students are basking in reflected glory, as the high school mock trial team they coached celebrates a spectacular season.

The School of Law was bustling with arguments and counterarguments as teams of second- and third-year students took part in an annual UB tradition, the intramural Charles S. Desmond Moot Court Competition.


With a nod to its long tradition of legal scholarship and anticipation of the next generation of that tradition, members of the Buffalo Law Review celebrated a season of achievements at the publication’s 27th annual dinner.

This year’s 27th annual Students of Color Dinner marked a first: the graduation of two students who came to the School of Law by way of DiscoverLaw, the school’s program to introduce promising students of color to the possibilities of a legal career.
A gay-rights pioneer told his story of two major court victories – ones that advanced the legal rights and human dignity of gay and lesbian people – at the annual dinner of OUTLaw, the Law School’s LGBTQ student organization.
