A Message from the Dean

December 13, 2005

Having safely survived Hurricane Katrina, the Tulane Law School community is pleased to be resuming normal classes in Weinmann Hall on January 9, 2006. Our faculty and staff have already returned to our building, and our commitment to excellence in legal education has not wavered. As we move forward into a new era, we fully intend to maintain, and even enhance, the quality of our students and faculty.

The Tulane campus has been fully restored, and the communities immediately adjacent to the University were largely spared from the extensive damage experienced in other parts of the city. The Tulane Law School community extends its heartfelt sympathies to those residents of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast who lost loved ones or who had their homes destroyed. As the first American law school to require community service in 1985, Tulane Law School fully intends to be appropriately involved in the recovery and rebuilding of New Orleans.

Tulane University has already announced a bold and courageous plan for the university that ensures continued academic excellence as well as financial recovery. The details of the plan are available at http://renewal.tulane.edu/ . Tulane Law School, as one of the oldest and most respected law schools in the country, will play an instrumental role in that renewal as we focus first and foremost on institutional quality, and continuing our progress to heighten that quality each and every year. We hope you will visit soon and see for yourself how we have not just come back, but come back stronger and more determined than ever.

Lawrence Ponoroff
Dean of the Law School, Mitchell Franklin Professor of Law
