The Client Counseling competition simulates a law office consultation, and competitors are expected to interview and advise the client, elicit relevant information, outline the problem and propose a solution.

The Donna Jo Morse Client Counseling Competition chair is Nicholas Davoli '14 and the competition associate is Calee Oas '14. Volunteers from all three class years participated as clients, and Professor Hill and Professor Rock served as advisors.

Each year, more than 200 students take part in Albany Law's Anthony V. Cardona '70 Moot Court Program, directed this year by David Galin '14. The students compete in several national competitions, and also host dozens of teams from law schools around the country for the annual Domenick L. Gabrielli Family Law Competition.
