Tulane University Law School

Tulane University Law School

The 12th oldest law school in the United States, Tulane University Law School was established in 1847, 13 years after the University of which it is a vital part. From its founding, Tulane has offered its students the opportunity to study both of the world's great legal systems–the common law system upon which English and US law is based, and the civil law system governing most of the rest of the world. The JD student body comprises 750 students from throughout the US, with just 15% from the state of Louisiana. At least 45 states are represented in the student body, as are close to 200 undergraduate schools. An additional 40 students are enrolled in Tulane Law School's LLM and SJD programs. Approximately 47% of the student body is female, and about 20% are students of color.
