On October 3, 2011, the US Senate unanimously confirmed Tulane Law School alumna Nanette Jolivette-Brown
(Law ’88, LLM ’98) to a US District Court judgeship in the Eastern District of Louisiana. Ms. Jolivette-Brown has served as City Attorney for the City of New Orleans since May 2010 and has also worked at a private firm in New Orleans. Her confirmation got me thinking about all of the amazing alums that represent Tulane Law School within the federal and state judiciary. Ms. Jolivette-Brown joins four fellow Tulane Law alums who currently serve as US District Judges in the Eastern District, as well as three US Magistrates in that court. We are also lucky to have three alums representing Tulane at the US Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit. We have over 20 alumni serving as judges in federal courts across the country, including the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and various district courts, including the Eastern District of New York, Middle District of Pennsylvania and Southern District of Mississippi, just to name a few. In addition, we have over 50 alumni working as state court judges across the country. We are so proud of Nanette Jolivette-Brown and all of the Tulane Law School graduates who represent us as esteemed members of the judiciary.
