Moot Court Honorary Round will take place April 22

April 19, 2021 12:45 PM

Lucille Dieckhaus and Zachary Creel will compete for the right to have their names engraved in first and second place “on the marble” as Tulane’s top-performing appellate student advocates.


The Moot Court Honorary Round Argument is scheduled for Thursday, April 22 at 5 p.m., with two Tulane Law students making arguments before a distinguished panel of federal judges.

Zachary Creel and Lucille "Lucy" Dieckhaus, both 3Ls,  will compete in a virtual format arguing Cohn v. Placerado Unified School District before Judges Carl Stewart of the Fifth Circuit, Nannette Jolivette Brown (L'88) of the Eastern District of Louisiana, and Eleni Roumel (L'00) of the United States Court of Federal Claims. The argument will center on First Amendment protections afforded pandemic-related social media posts in a school setting.
