Life after Law School

While a Tulane legal education (and the accompanying diploma) may be its own reward, there are many other benefits to being a member of the Tulane alumni community. 

Law Alumni Services and Benefits 

Law Library - Law School alumni are welcome to use the print resources of the Law Library. In order to receive library privileges (excluding use of the computer lab facilities and interlibrary loan services), you must complete a patron registration form (available at the Library’s circulation desk) and receive an updated Tulane ID that identifies your alumni status. Acquiring this card will ensure future access to the building and library.

Bar Certifications and Transcripts - If you are applying for a bar exam, you will likely have a form from your state's bar association requesting verification of your enrollment and/or degree. Christina Roux in the Academic Services Office can help complete this kind of form. This is applicable even for those who were enrolled in the Tulane Summer Abroad programs.  Please send any bar certification requests or forms to Academic Services at Tulane Law School, 6329 Freret St., Suite 204, New Orleans, LA 70118. If you have specific questions, you can reach Ms. Roux at 504.865.5935 or carbour@tulane.edu.

Some states require a certified transcript. If you need one, please mail or fax a signed request to the University Registrar's Office, Tulane University, 110 Gibson Hall, New Orleans, LA, 70118. The fax number is 504-865-6760. You can also complete a transcript request form at the Registrar's Office, 110 Gibson Hall, Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 5:00. Additional information concerning the Registrar's Office can be found at their website, http://registrar.tulane.edu/ under the Transcript Request link.

Loan Repayment Options - If you have questions about loan repayment options, consolidation, or our Loan Repayment Assistance Program, please do not hesitate to contact Georgia Whiddon in the Law Financial Aid Office, at finaid@law.tulane.edu or 504.865.5931. Ms. Whiddon will be happy to walk you through the various possibilities.

CDO PublicationsLearn how to create a legal résumé and effective cover letters, and how to develop strong interviewing and networking skills. To view the CDO Publications contact the Career Development Office at careers@law.tulane.edu.

Career Counseling - If at any point in your career you feel that you need career assistance, we will assign a career counselor to work with you. If you are in New Orleans, your career counselor will be available to meet with you in person; if not, we will work with you by telephone or e-mail to discuss your situation. While we do not have the capabilities of a “placement” firm, we can help you develop a job-search strategy. You can set up an appointment by calling 504.865.5942 or 800.648.9059.

Career Services Reciprocity - Tulane Law alumni can request access to a career center at a law school in another city for a prescribed period of time. Please be aware that not all law schools grant reciprocity and that reciprocity privileges are typically suspended from August 1 through November 1 due to fall recruiting programs. To request career-related services from other participating law school career centers, please fill out the Reciprocity Request Form.  For more information contact David Webster in the Career Development Office at (504) 865-5942.

Job Bulletins from Other Schools - The CDO receives third-year student / recent graduate / alumni job bulletins from law schools across the country through reciprocal agreements with Tulane Law School. The bulletins are listed alphabetically by state. If you have any questions regarding the bulletins, or how to sign up, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Continuing Legal Education - Tulane Law School’s Continuing Legal Education Office offers seminars for licensed attorneys and other professionals. States have varying annual CLE requirements. Our CLE Office is offering students the opportunity to attend one CLE program, free of charge, within the first 18 months after graduation.

Alumni Directories – Aside from the various networking opportunities available specifically to Tulane Law School alumni, the Tulane community offers a secure Online Directory to which all alumni have access. To register for the University's Online Community, call 1.877.272.0009 or e-mail alumni@tulane.edu. Members of this database are able to search the Tulane Online Community by name, school and class year, degree, city, state, country or legal specialty. Click here for the Tulane Alumni Association to register and create your own Tulane Community profile.
