The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law Moot Court Team has won the 22nd Annual National Criminal Procedure Tournament at the University of San Diego School of Law this past weekend.

The Criminal Procedure Team included law students Aaron Hurd and Jeff Briscoe and was coached by Elissa Blache, also a student.

This year's competition featured 46 teams from more than 31 U.S. law schools. The final round was judged by the Honorable Richard Huffman of the Fourth District of the California Court of Appeal, Karen Hewitt, an experienced trial lawyer and partner at Jones Day, and professor Donald Dripps, a recognized scholar of criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence and administrative law at the University of San Diego.

The Loyola Moot Court Program endeavors to cultivate the art of appellate advocacy with responsiveness and enthusiasm through team advancement, academic support and community involvement, thereby enhancing national recognition and pride among its members.
