The Deans’ Cup is an annual charity basketball game between the law schools of Columbia University (CLS) and New York University (NYU). First held in 2002, the game raises money for public interest and community service organizations at both universities and is sponsored by many large New York City law firms. A game between faculty members of the two schools is held at halftime. The game is the single largest law school event in the United States, and has raised more than a half million dollars for public interest foundations at the two law schools.

NYU leads the series 10-4. The 2015 edition of the Deans' Cup was played on March 26th at 8pm at NYU's Coles Sports & Recreation Center, and NYU won! The game was recorded and can be viewed HERE at

The 2016 Deans' Cup will take place at Columbia's Dodge Fitness Center on Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets and t-shirts will be sold the week before the game in Golding Lounge.
