Davrados, a member of the Advocacy Center, and an extern for the Honorable Ivan J. Lemelle of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. Andre's Comment, Finding the Fault Lines: An Epistemological Inquiry of the True Meaning of Civil Law "Fault," was selected as the top comment for his year and was published in the Loyola Law Review.
