Tulane University Law School, established in 1847, is the 12th oldest law school in the United States.

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.
