The LSU Law Center opened its doors to 168 Tulane and Loyola law students whose education has been interrupted because of Hurricane Katrina. The Law Center, working in collaboration with the Deans of the affected law schools, has admitted 128 Loyola and 48 Tulane second- and third-year students. Tuition has been waived, and students have been given visiting, non-matriculating status. The newly admitted students are largely Louisiana residents.
Priority enrollment has been given to graduating students who will take the Bar Exam this spring and to second-year students. In deference to the requests of the Tulane and Loyola deans, and in view of the impact that the visiting students will place on the infrastructure of the LSU Law Center, a decision has been made to limit admissions to second- and third-year students only.
