Tulane Law is proud to offer Juris Doctor (JD) candidates the opportunity to pursue a certificate of concentration in areas that draw upon our curricular strengths and the expertise of our faculty.
Students may elect to pursue a concentration in one of six certificate programs:
- Maritime Law
- Civil Law
- Environmental Law
- European Legal Studies
- International & Comparative Law
- Sports Law
There are currently six areas in which Tulane J.D. students can earn a certificate of concentration upon graduation if they complete a prescribed curriculum of upper-class courses. These areas are Civil Law, Environmental Law, European Legal Studies, International & Comparative Law, Maritime Law, and Sports Law. To avoid having students overspecialize in their J.D. studies, no student will be awarded more than one certificate of concentration. Students will register for a certificate program by submitting the JD Certificate Selection Form before their last semester (the form is located under the Forms link of the Academic Services page on the TLS Intranet, or may be picked up from the Law School Academic Services Office). The specific requirements for each certificate are listed in the registration materials.
