Dean's Cup Final Round 2022

Eric Tucker ’22 was the winner in the final round of the 2022 Dean’s Cup moot court competition held Feb. 22 at the Law School.

Tucker and fellow finalist Jenny N. Wheeler ’22 argued a fictional Supreme Court case challenging the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s 2019 expansion of the definition of “public charge” under the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Justice Goodwin Liu of the California Supreme Court, Justice Anita Earls of the North Carolina Supreme Court, and Judge Allison Jones Rushing ’07 of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit presided over the argument. Before announcing the winner, Liu praised the finalists for the quality of their oral advocacy.
