About Tulane Law School

The 12th oldest law school in the United States, Tulane University Law School was established in 1847, 13 years after the University of which it is a vital part.  From its founding, Tulane has offered its students the opportunity to study both of the world's great legal systems–the common law system upon which English and US law is based, and the civil law system governing most of the rest of the world.

Located on the main campus of Tulane University in uptown New Orleans, Tulane Law School has been accredited by the American Bar Association since May 1925.

The JD student body comprises 750 students from throughout the US, with just 15% from the state of Louisiana.  At least 45 states are represented in the student body, as are close to 200 undergraduate schools.  An additional 40 students are enrolled in Tulane Law School's LLM and SJD programs. Approximately 47% of the student body is female, and about 20% are students of color. 

Our students tell us the Law School experience at Tulane is one they would gladly repeat. They tell us they are happier than their friends at other law schools and that the combination of the exceptional educational opportunities available at Tulane Law School, and the chance to live in the culturally rich and aesthetically charming city of New Orleans is the ultimate educational experience.

Among the things that set Tulane Law School apart are the breadth and depth of its curriculum.  Its curricular strengths include international and comparative law, maritime law, and environmental law.  It offers six certificates of specialization in:  European Legal Studies, International & Comparative Law, Civil Law, Maritime Law, Environmental Law, and Sports Law.  It offers six different live-client clinics:  criminal defense, civil litigation, juvenile litigation, environmental law, domestic violence, mediation, and legislative and administrative advocacy.  Its business and corporate course offerings are strong, as is its intellectual property law curriculum.  Tulane Law School was the first in the country to require pro bono legal work as a condition of graduation.
