  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.


Moot Court

Administered by the Tulane Moot Court Board, the Tulane Moot Court is a student-run organization devoted entirely to the promotion and teaching of trial and appellate advocacy, as well as negotiation and arbitration skills.  Founded in 1929 by a small group of Tulane law students (including the legendary U.S. Fifth Circuit Judge John Minor Wisdom), the Tulane Moot Court counts among its alumni state and federal judges, members of Congress, Ambassadors, and state governors.  Indeed, it is among the oldest, most revered, and most visible programs of its kind in the nation.  Through numerous competitive and non-competitive simulations of actual courtroom situations, the Tulane Moot Court empowers students with the opportunity to "learn by doing" direct and cross-examinations, opening and closing arguments, persuasive appellate presentations, negotiations, and arbitrations.  Presided over by experienced judges, attorneys, and accomplished student advocates, the situations are realistic and in many cases are based on actual disputes.
