Christina Dominguez in 3rd DCA Official Session

Christina (Fernandez) Dominguez, graduated from St. Thomas University School of Law in May of 2014.  As a student she was a Member of the Moot Court Board and an Executive Board Member of Law Review.  During her time in Moot Court she was one of the Top 8 Oralists in the Moot Court Intramural Competition, competitor in the San Diego competition, and coached the ABA competition.  Christina studied law for the purpose of being an appellate attorney, joining Moot Court and applying for the Appellate Litigation Clinic “was a no brainer!”  Moot Court helped Christina gain more confidence and learning from an experienced appellate attorney was invaluable.

“Professor Blumberg was an amazing mentor!”

Christina took advantage of every opportunity St. Thomas offered in the field of appellate litigation.  And it certainly paid off as she has worked in the Criminal Appeals division of the Office of the Attorney General in Miami since September of 2015.  On Wednesday, March 16, 2016, Christina presented oral arguments on behalf of the State of Florida against Clinic Students, Elaine Carbuccia and Marlene Brito.  This case has special significance to Christina because it was not only her first oral argument as a licensed attorney, but she also argued it at her alma mater.  Christina enjoyed returning to St. Thomas to see faculty and staff and speak to law students.  As a student, Christina was an ALI and ALI mentor, so she really had a great time with the Appellate Clinic students at the luncheon.

We congratulate one of our own for her dedication to the field of appellate litigation.  And wish her many returns to St. Thomas for future Moot Court Board events.
