A number of law students displaced by Hurricane Katrina are starting classes this week at D.C.-area law schools, which are accepting second- and third-year law students from Tulane and Loyola universities in New Orleans for at least a semester. “Our doors are wide open,” says Dean Katherine Broderick of the University of the District of Columbia’s law school. George Washington University law students have offered housing to the 16 students attending classes there, and publishers have offered them free textbooks. At American, there have been more than 200 offers of assistance from housing to donations of clothing for the 21 students there. In addition, the university is considering extending a visiting professorship to faculty from affected schools during the spring semester. Dean Kurt Schmoke of Howard University says the school has offered to screen cases for the federal government and help people with Social Security benefits and property rights issues. “Our students and faculty just want to be of assistance,” he says.
