Tulane Law Highly Rated in National “Insider” Survey
In a year-long national survey of lawyers and law students, Tulane Law School was identified yesterday as one of five law schools outside the top-14 most highly rated by its own students and alumni for educational quality. With more than 10,000 responses over the course of 2012, the “Insider Survey” sought to identify “which firms and schools outside of the very top tiers are, according to insiders, great places to work or learn.” In addition to asking lawyers about the culture and work environment of law firms, the survey asked students and alumni to “rate their schools based on academics, social life, clinical training, career services, and financial aid advising.” Tulane Law School was identified as one of the top five law schools based on student and alumni satisfaction with these essential measures of educational quality.

Founded in 1847, Tulane Law School is the nation’s 12th oldest law school. Among other specialty offerings, Tulane offers the world’s leading programs in maritime law and sports law and exceptionally strong programs in international and comparative law, environmental law, and clinical education. This week, Tulane Law School is hosting its second annual Intersession program, an intensive, week-long lawyering skills training “boot camp” for more than 200 upper-class students. That program won Tulane recognition last fall as among the nation’s “20 Most Innovative Law Schools” by National Jurist magazine.
