Tulane 2022 Moot Court Honorary Round Competition

Moot Court Judges, Participants, etc.

On April 6, 2022, the Tulane Moot Court Honorary Round Competition was held at Tulane Law School before a distinguished panel of judges: Justice Piper Griffin of the Louisiana Supreme Court; Judge Roland Belsome (L ’84) of Louisiana’s 4th Circuit Court of Appeal; and Judge Karen Herman (L ’94) of the Orleans Parish Criminal District Court.

The two finalists, Michelle Domingue (L’22) and opposing counsel, Peter Vesich (L’22), in this “champion of champions” competition argued a very complex case of free speech rights of undocumented immigrants.  After brilliant arguments on each side, Michelle Domingue was ultimately the winner.

Herman, Herman & Katz alumni and partners provide an endowment of the Harry Herman Moot Court Excellence Fund to be used for Moot Court programming and the trial and appellate advocacy program and are proud to do their part in continuing the more than 90-year-old Moot Court tradition at Tulane Law.  Partners Russ Herman and Steve Herman were honored to attend and show their support.
