The newest student case notes for the Tulane Maritime Law Journal are set for a public preview March 19, thanks to the American Bar Association.
The Admiralty & Maritime Law Committee of the ABA’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section and the journal are sponsoring presentations by seven journal members whose writing has been selected for publication in the spring issue.
Liskow & Lewis is hosting the 5 p.m. event, which includes a reception, at its offices at One Shell Square, 701 Poydras St., Suite 5000, in New Orleans.
The partnership between the ABA committee and the Maritime Law Journal, which began in fall 2013, exposes practitioners to work being done through Tulane’s Maritime Law program and gives students an opportunity to get feedback and network with attorneys in the field. CLE credit is available for those who attend, and video of the presentations is expected to be posted online.
