The Law School was bustling with arguments and counterarguments
as two dozen second- and third-year students and nearly 50
volunteer judges took part in an annual SUNY Buffalo Law tradition:
the intramural Charles S. Desmond Moot Court Competition.
They stayed in town or traveled far. They helped represent
defendants and public prosecutors. They advocated for children, for
refugees, for the poor. For the Law School’s newest crop of
public-interest fellows, this summer meant making a difference for
those who need it most.
