Tulane Law School

Tulane University Law School, established in 1847, is the 12th oldest law school in the United States. The Law School is centrally located on the main university campus in uptown New Orleans, in a picturesque neighborhood of residences, both large and small, as well as restaurants, bookstores, and other commercial establishments. The campus itself and most surrounding neighborhoods have recovered from Hurricane Katrina. Not surprisingly, however, unparalleled opportunities abound to become involved in the rebuilding and renewal of virtually all aspects of the city.
