Tulane Environmental Law Clinic
6329 Freret Street
The Tulane Environmental Law Clinic’s mission is to train effective and ethical lawyers by guiding law students through actual representation of clients. The Clinic represents individuals and community organizations that could not otherwise afford competent legal help. The Clinic also represents local governments, such as parish water providers. By giving a voice to clients who would otherwise not be heard, the Clinic broadens public participation in environmental decisions – before both courts and administrative agencies. By representing clients who have historically been left out of governmental processes, the Clinic has become a powerful force for reform of Louisiana environmental law.
