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.

 
 
  
Juvenile Litigation Clinic

Course Description
This is the juvenile clinic in which 10 students represent indigent clients in juvenile delinquency cases, child support cases, children in need of care cases, and termination of parental rights and abandonment cases.  Students work under the direction of the supervising attorney, but the students are primarily responsible for all client and witness interviews, pre-trial hearings, trials and appeals.  The course must be taken in conjunction with the Juvenile Advocacy Seminar.  The course lasts the entire year and carries 3 credits in the fall and 3 credits in the spring.  Students are selected during the spring of their second year based upon written applications and personal interviews with the supervising attorney.  Professor Katner plans to invoke a rule penalizing students for lack of preparation and/or excessive absenteeism.
