The Ignatian Award was created to acknowledge outstanding students at graduation for their commitment to the integrity of life, their demonstration of providing service to others, their high regard for Ignatian, Jesuit values and their contributions to the advancement of religion and citizenship. It has become a valued tradition to present this award to four students, one senior male, one senior female, one graduate student and one law student. This year, Loyola honors undergraduates Calvin M. Monley and Maria E.

Please join the entire Moot Court Board in congratulating and welcoming 28 new staff members to Moot Court.
The competition was extremely fierce this year and all of the 1Ls should be very proud of themselves, but the following students went above and beyond and delivered stellar arguments.
Congratulate these students when you see them as this was a very competitive process.
In no particular order:
The Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice's Community Justice section represented Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center in cases against two housing providers (Lexi Properties and NOLA Apartments) in the New Orleans area that discriminated on the basis of family status. Student practitioners included Angela O'Brien, Vanessa Howell, Annais Narrow, Abraham Sandel, and Ameca Reali; all students were supervised by staff attorney Davida Finger.
