Admiralty Law Institute & Maritime Law Conferences
Tulane is acknowledged around the world as a leader in the admiralty field. Every other year in March, hundreds of lawyers, both practicing and academic, converge on the Tulane campus for the Admiralty Law Institute, the oldest (since 1965) and largest continuing legal education program devoted to maritime law. The Institute lasts for three days, and the papers and presentations that it produces are published in the Tulane Law Review. Recent Institutes have typically been attended by 400 lawyers and others from the shipping and marine insurance industries, from over 30 states and 11 countries.Click HERE for more details on the Admiralty Law Institute.
Tulane Law School also sponsors maritime law conferences overseas, including programs in Greece, Panama, Copenhagen, London and Seville, as well as maritime CLE conferences and academic symposiums in New Orleans.
Tulane Law School students are invited to attend, at no charge, the Admiralty Law Institute and maritime conferences to gain specialized knowledge and take advantage of the opportunity to network with practitioners and scholars in the field.
