Tulane University Law School
by Donna McGill
The campus itself is built upon a 100 acre plot, located in what's referred to as the ''uptown residential section of New Orleans''. Beautiful lawns, spectacular azaleas that bloom twice a year and gray stone and red brick buildings all come together to define the majestic university. Students enjoy the rich culture born in Louisiana, including the annual Mardi Gras festivities. Its location in the deep south means students have few truly cold days, but instead, enjoy the salt air and war temperatures, courtesy of the Gulf of Mexico.
Dean David D. Meyer, the 22nd Dean of Tulane University Law School, spent several years as a legal professor. He has researched and published multiple papers and writings on the legal profession, focusing heavily on family law. His hope for law students is that they seek their education with a desire to ''learn analytically, reason critically and solve real problems in the real world''. With reiterations that the collective school honors tradition and legacy, Dean Meyer remains committed to ensuring Tulane remains one of the most revered schools in the country.
There's no denying the rich southern flavors - via the sights and sounds - found on and around campus. New Orleans, always known for its culture and forward thinking attitudes, offers students beautiful housing options, including many Antebellum homes renovated into apartments, some of the best food, courtesy of eclectic restaurants, found in the world and opportunities that are only found in the sleep southern city. Students are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions for assistance with their housing needs. Graduate students are afforded certain considerations, as well.
First year law students are required to take eight courses. First semester courses include Torts, Criminal Law, Civil Procedure and Contracts I.
