Biography:

Tania Tetlow is an Associate Provost for the University, focusing on International Affairs. Her work on violence against women has taken her around the world, providing training and consulting in China, Turkey, Rwanda and Egypt. She was a member of the U.S. delegation to the 2014 U.S.-China People-to-People Exchange held in Beijing. In New Orleans, she trains police to better respond to domestic violence and sexual assault.

A former federal prosecutor with expertise in family law and the use of legal tools for combating domestic violence, she previously directed the Domestic Violence Clinic, and remains active in the Clinic’s policy initiatives. Next year she also will teach Civil Procedure and Legal Profession.

Tetlow’s scholarship focuses on preventing discrimination by juries against both defendants and crime victims. Her work includes “Discriminatory Acquittal” (William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal, 2009) and “Solving Batson” (accepted for publication in the William & Mary Law Review). She also has published in the Iowa and Duke Law Journals and the Penn Journal of Constitutional Law.

Before joining the Tulane law faculty in 2005, Tetlow clerked for Judge James Dennis at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, practiced commercial litigation at Phelps Dunbar in New Orleans and, in 2000, worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, focused on violent crime and narcotics cases.

After Hurricane Katrina, she worked with Women of the Storm, lobbying Congress for recovery aid and coastal erosion assistance. She also chaired the New Orleans Library Board and the Library Foundation, helping to raise $7 million in funding, rebuild two flooded branches and design and implement a new urban library system.

In 2009, Tetlow received the Tulane University President’s Award for Excellence in Professional and Graduate Teaching.
