Prospective Students

Tulane Law School typically has a limited number of places available for visiting students from other law schools.  Such a student must be in good standing at another law school. The student enrolls for one or two semesters at Tulane Law School in courses that will count toward the degree requirements at the institution from which the student will receive the JD.

Visiting Status 

Prospective visiting students should submit:

  • A completed Visiting Application Form available through www.lsac.org. Alternatively, hard copy application materials in pdf format can be provided upon request; e-mail admissions@law.tulane.edu or call 504.865.5930
  • The $60 application fee (fee waivers are not available for visiting students)
  • A letter of good standing from the appropriate dean of the student's current law school, also indicating that credit will be granted for satisfactory completion of Tulane Law School coursework and stating any constraints on the visit (e.g., a restriction on the number of courses or credit hours, or limits on the particular courses to be taken)
  • Certified transcripts of all law coursework completed
  • A brief explanation of the reasons for wishing to visit Tulane in response
  • A résumé in addition to fully completing the application

Applications for visiting status should be submitted at least two months prior to the start of the semester for which enrollment is requested.

Subject to the limitations identified later in this paragraph, visiting students may enroll in any courses for which they meet the prerequisites or for which the professor has agreed to waive the prerequisites.  Clinical courses are not open to visiting students.  Limited-enrollment courses and seminars are open to visiting students so long as Tulane degree candidates are not displaced.
