Tulane Law School alumna Lynn Luker (L ’81, LLM '85, LLM ’92), a nationally recognized New Orleans litigator, has been selected to chair the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) Board of Directors.
Luker runs her own firm and was instrumental in organizing Tulane’s Intersession boot camp, where she leads the civil litigation track with fellow alum Chris Teske (L ’00). She also is Co-Director of the Law School’s Trial Advocacy program and a diversity trainer for the Louisiana State Bar Association.
“Lynn Luker leads in everything she does, both in the New Orleans bar and here at Tulane Law School,” said Dean David Meyer. “NAMWOLF is very fortunate to have the benefit of her vision and boundless energy, and we at Tulane are proud of her national leadership in diversifying the bar.” Luker succeeds Emery Harlan of Milwaukee, founding chair of NAMWOLF, a nonprofit trade association with 118 member firms in 33 states.
“I am honored to follow Emery and to serve NAMWOLF’s members and corporate and governmental partners,” Luker said in a news release from the group. “We have made great strides in providing value and talent to businesses throughout the United States and I look forward to accomplishing so much more.”
