The Maritime Law Center at Tulane Law School each year awards one or two graduate fellowships in maritime law. The graduate fellows assist the director of the Center while pursuing the LLM in Admiralty on a full-time basis at Tulane. The Fellows' duties, which occupy approximately 25 percent of their time, include assistance in research, the development of teaching materials, and the preparation of seminars in maritime law. The fellowships carry partial tuition waivers. Individuals interested in the Maritime Law Fellowship must first apply for and be offered admission to Tulane's LLM in Admiralty program. Accepted candidates will be notified of their admission and will then be considered for the Fellowship. Announcement of the Fellowship recipient(s) is generally made in late April or May.
