Basic Information

Tulane University Law School is the most prestigious school in Louisiana, and offers one of the top environmental programs in the nation. 

Only rivaled regionally by Florida State and the University of Alabama School of Law in terms of admission standards, the New Orleans-based law school is among the region’s elite. While its tuition is $54,568, the school is one of the most generous to give out grant offerings. Its estimated net tuition rate (tuition after scholarships) is only $34,000. 

Tulane benefits from its location in one of the nicest neighborhoods in New Orleans. New Orleans is a hub for multi-district litigation in the U.S., which has led to a sophisticated legal community. Students also enjoy living in the culturally rich and aesthetically charming city of New Orleans.

Among the things that set Tulane Law School apart are the breadth and depth of its curriculum. Its curricular strengths include international and comparative law, maritime law, and environmental law.  It offers six certificates of specialization in:  European Legal Studies, International & Comparative Law, Civil Law, Maritime Law, Environmental Law, and Sports Law.  It offers six different live-client clinics:  criminal defense, civil litigation, juvenile litigation, environmental law, domestic violence, mediation, and legislative and administrative advocacy. Its business and corporate course offerings are strong, as is its intellectual property law curriculum.  Tulane Law School was the first in the country to require pro bono legal work as a condition of graduation

The private school is also among the leaders instituting innovative educational experiences. It has a one-week program in which second- and third-year students are exposed to a legal boot camp. Working with experienced attorneys in teams, the students are given clients and a civil, criminal or transactional problem to resolve in one week.
