  Student Life  

While much of any law student's time is (and should be) occupied by attending classes and studying, Tulane law students quickly realize that the Law School is a place where things are always happening, both inside and outside the classroom.  The organizations listed below were started and are maintained by students, under the auspices of the Student Bar Association, our student body government.


Tulane Women in Law

Tulane Women in Law is an organization committed to examining and discussing issues affecting women in both substantive areas of the law and in the legal profession. To reach this objective, TWIL hosts numerous panels of practicing and non-practicing attorneys and judges, which focus on the nexus of gender and the law. TWIL membership is open to all Tulane Law School students.

Fall 2017 Panels:
This year, TWIL will be hosting and co-hosting a number of panels open to all Tulane Law School students. Each panel will have a different theme designed to inform students of the options ahead of them as they prepare to enter the legal field.
