Comparative law at Tulane has a long tradition, of which the Eason Weinmann Center is an important part. Created with the help of a generous gift from The Honorable John Giffen and Virginia Eason Weinmann in 1981, it is today a leading think tank and an academic hub for both American and foreign scholars with an interest in expanding the international conversation about law.

Located between the common and civil law worlds, and with manifold connections to Europe, South America and Africa, the Center is in an ideal position to build bridges between different legal cultures.
The Center serves as a platform for Tulane's achievements in foreign and comparative scholarship, and aims to make comparative thinking a natural part of the daily classroom experience. In an effort to be practical as well as transcendent, the Center also provides legal advice for legislators, courts, NGOs, and commercial enterprises operating in an increasingly interdependent world.
