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.
The 2009 ABA Representation in Mediation Regional Competition was hosted by Loyola College of Law March 6 &. 7. The First two rounds of the competition were held at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana thanks to the support and generosity of Chief Judge Sarah Vance and Judges Carl Barbier and Ivan Lemelle. The team composed of Anne Marie Muller and Jennifer Kensill placed 3rd and the team composed of Rick Brown and Danny Milian placed 6th in the Region. The teams were coached by Kandace Hamilton and Prof. Nannette Brown.
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.
