The LSU Law Center’s Domenick Gabrielli National Family Law Moot Court Competition team of Priya Kumar and Kristi Obafunwa advanced as one of the Top Four teams in the nation at their competition, which was recently held at Albany Law School in Albany, New York.

Each year, the Gabrielli competition problem focuses on a cutting-edge and topical issue of family law. This year’s case file examined the issue of whether a parent commits neglect of a child where the child witnesses, but is not directly subjected to, domestic violence and whether an emergency order of removal relating to the child violated due process norms.

Professor Andrea Carroll (’00) coaches the Gabrielli Family Law team.
