Tulane Law School strives to create opportunities that enhance our students' practical skillsets in order to better prepare them for their jobs following law school. Through partnerships with local legal professionals, alumni, employers and law school faculty, Tulane Law works to supplement the classroom experience with programs such as Intersession "Boot Camp", externships, judicial clerkships and pro bono opportunities.

 
 
  
Environmental Law Clinic

Course Description
Students enrolled in this clinical program will handle environmental matters such as the disposal of hazardous and solid waste, the discharge of air and water pollutants, the protection of wildlife, wetlands and scenic rivers, and the preservation and enhancement of the urban environment.  Student attorneys have responsibility for representing clients in judicial and administrative  proceedings.  Student attorneys research and draft pleadings and comments, write and argue motions, negotiate settlements, and present evidence at trials or adjudicatory hearings.  Students are selected on the basis of an application and personal interview.  3 credits in the fall semester and 3 credits in the spring.  Students who receive a “B-” or above in the fall semester are eligible and encouraged to continue with the clinic for the spring semester.  Professor Babich plans to invoke a rule penalizing students for lack of preparedness and/or excessive absenteeism
