Albany Law School interschool competitions, also referred to as "travel teams," allow Albany Law students to compete against other law schools throughout the United States. These competitions are based around appellate advocacy, trial and other practical situations.
These interschool competitions are the most significant way for students to test their abilities within the legal community as they provide the opportunity to compete with law students nationally and internationally.
Additionally, many of these competitions are known and highly respected by law firms and legal organizations throughout the country and provide an invaluable asset to a student's resume.
