Shelter From the Storm

But for Thu and 11 other Tulane Law students, the storm clouds had a silver lining: they spent the fall semester at Penn Law, continuing their legal education as visiting students. The twelve adopted Tulane students were integrated into the school's classes and activities without any additional tuition fees beyond those they had already paid to Tulane.

“Being here has really given me a sense of stability,” said Thu. “I feel incredibly lucky.”

Students working on Tulane Law's journals and reviews were given a private study room, as well as free photocopying and access to electronic resources. All of the students' books were provided for free by Aspen Press and West Publishing. And beyond academic pursuits, Penn Law has also helped some of the displaced students continue an equally important process: the search for a job.

“They got us into the on-campus interviewing here, which had weighed heavily on a lot of second-year students' minds,” said Jami Vibbert, a 2L at Tulane who studied at Penn as an un dergraduate. “The career people were in the office until at least nine p.m., helping fit us into interview spots. Penn has been very, very accommodating.”
