The Legal Research & Writing Program 

Legal Research & Writing introduces first-year students to the fundamentals of legal analysis, writing, research, citation, and advocacy.  Over the course of two semesters, students learn to solve legal problems through a series of progressively more complex assignments.  Through these assignments, students begin to develop several important lawyering skills, including analyzing and synthesizing case law, interpreting statutes, finding and selecting appropriate authorities, distinguishing between material and immaterial facts, applying the law to fact scenarios in predictive and persuasive formats, and communicating their analyses effectively.

The Forrester Fellow Program  

Tulane Law School is currently accepting applications for a position in its Forrester Fellowship program. The position is designed for individuals who plan to apply for tenure-track law faculty positions. The law school will provide significant informal support for such. The person selected for the position will teach in the first-year legal writing program and will be expected to participate in scholarly activities at the law school, including faculty workshops. Fellows are appointed to a one-year term with the possibility of a one-year renewal. The fellowship will not lead to a full-time teaching position at Tulane Law School. Applicants must have a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school, outstanding academic credentials, and law-related practice and/or clerkship experience. To apply, please visit http://tulane.edu/jobs/. The law school aims to fill this position by March 2015. Tulane is an equal opportunity employer and encourages women and members of minority communities to apply.
