Law school is a unique educational experience that requires hard work, a firm commitment, and unwavering confidence in one’s self. The decision to attend law school is not something that should be taken lightly and a Juris Doctor degree should be should be something you really want to pursue. Tulane’s Black Law Student Association (BLSA) knows that choosing a law school is a very important and difficult decision to make. The admissions process can be a rigorous one and is highly competitive.
Two things that I can almost guarantee you will hear no matter where you attend law school is that (1) “Law School is Hard” and (2) “We will be teaching how to think like a ‘Lawyer.’” While there is nothing we can do about this first point, we at Tulane BLSA try to help facilitate students’ ability to “think like a lawyer.” We invite you to become not only a part of the Tulane family, but a part of our BLSA family.
Tulane is an excellent place to begin a legal career. There are a number of scholastic and legal opportunities at Tulane and BLSA members are an integral part of them all. You will find that BLSA members are involved in a variety of activities from Law Review and moot court to the various Tulane law clinics and the Tulane University Legal Assistance Program. This is a very exciting time to be in New Orleans. The city is very culturally and geographically diverse and Tulane reflects that diversity. Tulane offers you not only a quality legal education, but also a great experience. You will receive an experience that cannot and will not be replicated at any other law school in the country.
We are excited about your decision to attend law school and really hope that you think about becoming a part of not only the Tulane family, but our BLSA family as well. If you have any questions about Tulane, please do not hesitate to contact us at TulaneBLSA@gmail.com.
