The Buffalo Law Experience

From legal competitions to our 125 anniversary celebration, SUNY Buffalo Law School has much to offer students, faculty and the community. Below are some recent highlights.


12 second and third-year students from SUNY Buffalo Law School made an unprecedentedly strong showing in the Northeast Regional Round of the national Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition.

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.
The Buffalo Law Review is a dispassionate place for legal scholarship, but at the journal’s year-end dinner, there was high emotion.
Looking back in celebration and forward in anticipation, SUNY Buffalo Law School’s students of color gathered at their annual dinner to renew their commitment to “lift as we climb.”
