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.


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.

Teams travelled across the country to SUNY Buffalo Law to participate in the forty-third Albert R. Mugel National Tax Law Competition, the oldest and most prestigious tax law moot court in the country.
