TULAP is currently open for the 2018–2019 school year.
TULAP is a legal services program funded by the Tulane University Associated Student Body. We provide free legal advice and low-cost representation to current Tulane University students, staff, and faculty. TULAP also provides free notarial services and information regarding legal rights. Because we are funded by the University, we may only provide representation to current students, staff, and faculty, and cannot represent one member of the Tulane community against another, as that would present a conflict of interest.
Please note that TULAP's services are available ONLY to current Tulane students, faculty, and staff. You MUST provide a Tulane email address to make an appointment.
Our hours are Fridays from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Areas of representation: Business (Corporation, LLC and Partnership), Consumer, Contract, Debt Remediation and Management, Domestic (Adoption, Divorce, and Child Support), Emancipation, Employment (Labor), Guardianship/Interdiction, Insurance, Landlord-Tenant, Name Change, Nuisance, Personal Injury, Power of Attorney, Property, Small Claims, Title Transfer, Tort, Will (Successions & Probate).

When clients come in for an appointment, they meet with one of our law student clerks. Law clerks are trained to discuss clients' legal problems, discern important legal issues, and aid the attorneys with legal research and follow-up. Law clerks cannot give any legal advice or opinions. All conversations and case records are kept strictly confidential.
Initial attorney consultations and basic legal advice and assistance are free. The client agrees to reimburse TULAP for any additional expenses he or she authorizes after meeting with the attorney (i.e., postage, copy costs, etc.). Cases involving additional work by the attorney, including court appearances, are subject to attorney's fees at a reduced rate subject to the attorney's discretion, and related expenses.
