Tulane Law School

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
The Tulane Environmental Law Clinic’s (TELC’s) purpose is to train law students in the practical aspects of representing clients in highly regulated fields, with an emphasis on strategic thinking, thorough investigation and research, and persuasive writing and oral communication. TELC student attorneys are responsible for advancing client interests in disputes across a wide range of environmental issues. They typically research and draft pleadings or administrative comments, argue motions, negotiate settlements, and/or present evidence at hearings. TELC is open to 3Ls, 2Ls (during the spring semester only), and LLMs with JD degrees from U.S. law schools. We encourage - but do not require - JD students who receive a “B-” or above during their first semester to continue for a second semester. LLMs are limited to one semester in TELC. Under student-practice rules, 3Ls and LLMs may sign pleadings and appear in court under the guidance of TELC’s supervising attorneys. Professor Babich plans to invoke a rule penalizing students for excessive absenteeism. 3 credits each semester.
