Law Students Score Supreme Court Victory
The Cavalier baseball team was not the only U.Va. entity that earned a victory in a high-stakes contest yesterday.
The U.Va. Law School’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic scored a big win before the U.S. Supreme Court in Nevada Commission on Ethics v. Carrigan.

The court unanimously sided with the law students’ position. You can read all about it here.
