Tulanians dominated the list of lawyers, judges and educators chosen by New Orleans CityBusiness as pacesetters for the profession. The 2015 Leadership in Law class of 50 professionals lists 24 Tulane Law School alumni. That includes two of the four Tulane Law faculty members recognized.
Among the honorees are the school’s two top administrators, Dean David Meyer and Vice Dean for Academic Affairs Ron Scalise (L ’00), along with former Vice Dean Janet Hoeffel and Clinical Instructor Elizabeth Grace Livingston de Calderon (L ’98).
CityBusiness started the Leadership in Law recognition in 2005 to celebrate lawyers whose professional and community involvement “set the pace for the overall community.” They are chosen in the categories of court-associated, educators, firm-associated and in-house counsel.
A reception recognizing the honorees is set for March 23, 5-7:30 p.m., at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Here are the Tulanians selected. A full list is available here.
