New York, March 30, 2009 — The largest student-run law school event in the United States is the annual Deans’ Cup co-ed basketball game played between students of Columbia Law School and New York University School of Law.
Proceeds from the games support public interest law programs at both schools. Over the years the Deans’ Cup has raised more than half a million dollars for public interest programs.
The Deans’ Cup also brings the professors of law onto the court for a faculty game at half-time. Since the first Deans’ Cup in 2002, Columbia Law School students have won three of the seven games, while their professors have won five of theirs.
The game, whose location alternates each year between the two schools, takes place this year at Columbia University.
