On March 11, 2008, the Tulane Law School faculty approved the creation of a new certificate in International & Comparative Law for JD students, to be awarded for the first time to students in the 2009 graduating class. Students eligible to receive the certificate will use 15 of their elective hours to take such courses as Comparative Law, Public International Law, Transnational Litigation, and others from a list of 15 or more comparative and international courses offered each year. The new Certificate in International & Comparative Law joins the existing certificate programs at Tulane Law School: Environmental Law, European Legal Studies, Maritime Law, Sports Law, and Civil Law. About one third of each JD class receives one of Tulane Law School’s certificates of specialization at graduation.
