In recognition of Professor William Lovett's long commitment to Tulane Law School as a faculty member, as well as his lifelong dedication to the practice and study of the law, an alumnus of the Law School has chosen to honor Professor Lovett's service and scholarship through the creation of the William A. Lovett Law Scholarship Endowed Fund.
Professor Lovett began teaching at the Law School in 1969. Prior to joining the faculty at Tulane, he was a trial attorney for the US Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, and staff economist for the Federal Trade Commission. Professor Lovett is a widely regarded authority on a range of legal issues including antitrust, banking and financial institutions, shipping and the maritime sector, torts, economic regulations, and international trade policy.
Professor Lovett earned his AB from Wabash College in 1956. He earned his JD from New York University in 1959, an AM in Economics from Harvard University in 1964, and his PhD in Economics from Michigan State University in 1969.
The Lovett Scholarship is used to provide tuition support to an incoming student at Tulane Law School.
