The Tulane Maritime Law Journal was founded in 1973 in conjunction with the student-run Maritime Law Society at Tulane Law School. The first issue of the Journal was released in March of 1975 as The Maritime Lawyer.  In 1987, the publication's name was changed to the Tulane Maritime Law Journal, reflecting its status as a student-run journal at Tulane Law School. The Journal has a wide and diverse circulation of subscribers in all 50 U.S. states and nearly 50 foreign countries, comprised of private admiralty law firms, marine insurance companies, shipping lines, federal agencies, law school libraries, federal judges, and the United States Supreme Court.

Beginning its 36th year of publication, the Tulane Maritime Law Journal, formerly The Maritime Lawyer, is the first and pre-eminent student-edited admiralty law journal in the world.  The Journal has a circulation of over 1000, spanning 38 countries on six continents, and including private law firms, marine insurance companies, shipping lines, federal agencies, federal judges, and the United States Supreme Court.  Members of the journal have the opportunity to interact with local, national, and international admiralty attorneys.

The Journal publishes two issues each year consisting of practical and scholarly works written by academics, practitioners, and students.  Members of the Journal, numbering between 40 and 45, are selected on the basis of a summer writing competition and academic performance.
