Information for Tulane and Loyola (New Orleans) law students

The University of Maryland School of Law community is deeply saddened by the devastation and tragic loss of life caused by Katrina. We know you must be facing a whole range of pressing concerns, among which how to continue your legal education is but one.

In response to the crisis in New Orleans and in accordance with the guidance received from the Deans of Tulane and Loyola-New Orleans Schools of Law, the University of Maryland School of Law will accept applications from 3L students for visiting student status for the Fall Semester 2005. (A preference will be given to those students who are residents of Maryland or who have family or other strong ties to the state.) We will take applications from 2Ls but their acceptance as visitors is provisional, conditioned on the later permission from their home schools for that status.

Interested students should promptly contact Patricia Scott, Office of Admissions, at pscott@law.umaryland.edu or (410) 706-3492. Students are expected to begin school the week of September 6th. We will waive tuition and fees for the fall semester for students who enroll as visitors from either Tulane or Loyola-New Orleans and who have paid tuition to their home school. We hope to provide grants for the purchase of books and supplies. We will work with students individually to assist in this difficult time of transition.

We have joined with law schools across the country in offering this support. For information about the other schools participating in this effort, visit www.aals.org.
