Tulane Finishes In Top 8 in International Moot Court Competition in Vienna

April 12, 2004

International accolades for Tulane Law Students competing in Vienna -Tulane Law School's team finished in the top 8 out of a field of 135 moot court teams from around the world at the Willem C. Vis Moot Court Competition in international commercial arbitration, held April 2-8 in Vienna.

The students on the team are Warren Burns (3L), Allison Cook (2L), Lorien Golaski (2L) and Anne Herrmann (LL.M.). Third-year law student Allison Caire, a member of last year’s team, returned as the student coach for this year’s competition.   Two Tulane alumni, Melissa Elwyn (JD 2003) and Christian Alberti (LL.M. 2002), returned to the competition to act as arbitrators. Warren Burns was recognized with an honorable mention for the "Best Oralist" award.

This year’s moot court problem dealt with conformity of goods to contract terms and fundamental breach of contract.  Typically, each year’s problem also poses a procedural arbitration issue, and this year’s revolved around the posting of security for legal costs of arbitration and the confidentiality of the arbitration proceedings.
