Perhaps the oldest firm in the city, founded in 1853, this firm comprises 239 lawyers, 40 of them from Tulane. The firm provides the funds for a partial scholarship for a second-year law student from Louisiana who is pursuing the civil law curriculum and is ranked in the top 25 percent of his or her class. Recipients must demonstrate financial need. The scholarship is renewable for the third year of law school so long as the recipient remains in the top 25 percent of his or her class. Therefore, two upperclass students receive the scholarship each year, one in the second-year class and one in the third-year class.
