Tulane, Loyola Law Students Coming to U.Va.

September 2, 2005

The University of Virginia School of Law will accept 12 second- and third-year students from Tulane and Loyola as visiting students for the fall term. Hurricane Katrina has disrupted studies for thousands of college students in the Gulf Coast region.

"Together with other law schools from across the nation, we are doing what we can to help those whose lives have been so severely disrupted by this terrible tragedy," said Law School Dean John C. Jeffries Jr.

Founded in 1819, the University of Virginia School of Law is the second-oldest continuously operating law school in the nation. Consistently ranked among the top law schools, Virginia is a world-renowned training ground for distinguished lawyers and public servants, instilling in them a commitment to leadership, integrity and community service.
