For the third straight semester, the American Bar Association is giving Tulane Maritime Law Journal members an opportunity to share their research and scholarship with practitioners and academics at a public preview March 26.
The event is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., hosted by Liskow & Lewis at One Shell Square, 701 Poydras St., Suite 5000, in New Orleans. A reception follows the presentations and discussion.
CLE credit also is available for those who attend. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is made possible through a partnership between the journal and the Admiralty & Maritime Law Committee of the ABA’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section. It allows students whose articles have been selected for publication to get feedback and network with attorneys in the field.
