The Trial Advocacy Program is excited and honored to announce their team's recent success at the American Association of Justice National Student Trial Advocacy Competition. Loyola's team placed second in the Regional Competition in Atlanta, Georgia. I am told our team missed first place by one point, so apparently it was a close competition.
Information, Technology and Privacy Law Moot Court Team, comprised of Sarah Broussard (Coach), Kelly Stein (Oralist), Adam Bosso (Oralist), and Jordan Jeansonne (Brief Writer), competed in the John Marshall Law School International Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law, hosted in Chicago, Illinois, and finished in the Top 12 out of 27 Teams competing from around the world.
Mardi Gras Sports and Entertainment Law Moot Court Team, comprised of Patrick Cole (Coach), Byron Arthur and Arielle McConduit (Oralist), and Meg Alsfeld (Brief Writer), competed in the Tulane Mardi Gras Moot Court Competition, and finished in the Top 8 out of 45 Teams competition. Meg Alsfeld’s Brief was recognized as one of the Top 5 in the competition, and won the award for Best Respondent Brief. Please join with me in congratulating the team for a job well done.
Loyola College of Law Professor Mitchell Crusto recently published a scholarly article in the University of Pennsylvania's Journal of Constitutional Law (Vol. 11, No. 2 , January 2009). The journal “provides a forum for the interdisciplinary study of and rigorous analysis of constitutional law.” Crusto’s article, “Unconscious Classism: Entity Equality for Sole Proprietors,” explores the constitutionality of failing to treat sole proprietors as legal entities for titling purposes and provides insight into how the law legally disadvantages small and minority businesses.
Professor of Law Mitchell Crusto will be publishing two articles this semester. The first, titled “Enslaved Constitution: Obstructing the Freedom to Travel,” will be published by the University of Pittsburgh Law Review. The second, titled “Unconscious Classism: Entity Equality for Sole Proprietors,” will be published by The University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law.
