Law Schools taking in other law students

By September 2, 2005katrina

Duke is one of many law schools across the nation that is opening its doors to students displaced by Katrina.  We have accepted 11 visiting students for the fall semester.  Ten are 2L and 3L students from Tulane and Loyola-New Orleans, and one is an LL.M. student from Tulane.  They will all start on
Monday.

And from my friend Eileen Quenin:
"Price (my husband a law student at Loyola) is also fine.  Price is in Fort Smith Ark.  He contacted the Dean of their law school who has been giving us info on where Loyola and Tulane students can go to continue their education.  I thought you may wish to post some of this info.  I understand also that LSU will allow law students to attend there and will waive the tuition."
