Student groups wrap up the year, in person

Putting the worst of pandemic isolation behind us, UB Law students made the very most of this spring’s year-end gatherings and celebrations. Some of the law school’s best-loved traditions were back—live and in person!—and our students were ready to celebrate. Here’s a round-up of the highlights, with photos, of this welcome return to form.
