Tulane University Law School, with its roots deep in the Napoleonic law, is particularly at home in the capital of France. In the United States, Tulane has been precursor and pioneer in the field of comparative law: it teaches a complete civil law curriculum, conducts regular faculty exchange with great law faculties of Europe, and brings European students each year to its graduate program in New Orleans. Our program in Paris not only follows that tradition, but has created a new vocation: to train U.S. students and lawyers to understand the new European Union. Our Paris Institute’s courses in international and comparative studies are designed to ready students for transnational practice in the United States, Europe or other parts of the world. The Institute is hosted by Paris-Dauphine University, one of the great universities of Europe. In addition to the large contingent of U.S. law students from around the States, most years a number of students from other European universities are admitted. Our program takes advantage of the educational and cultural riches of Paris by including visits to the French Supreme Court, the National Assembly and world-famous museums. For U.S. students who can speak French fluently, we offer a limited number of internships at law firms in Paris.
