Tulane is acknowledged around the world as a leader in the admiralty field. Every other spring, hundreds of lawyers, both practicing and academic, converge on the Tulane campus for the three day Admiralty Law Institute, the oldest (since 1965) and largest continuing legal education program devoted to maritime law. Many of the papers presented at the Institute are published in the Tulane Law Review. Recent Institutes have typically been attended by over 400 lawyers, shipping and marine insurance industry representatives and academics from over 30 states and 11 countries.
The next Admiralty Law Institute will be held March 2020.
