Legal clinics for skills-based training began at Tulane Law School in 1978. They are now a hallmark of Tulane’s legal education program. Forty years ago, Tulane was one of the few law schools to venture into using live-client experience through clinics and practice simulations, rather than a case book, to teach advocacy skills.
