Students Displaced by Hurricane Find Fall Semester Accommodation at Suffolk University & Law School


he dean of Tulane Law School in New Orleans put out a request for law schools to accept third-year students for the fall semester only. Suffolk University Law School fielded a number of calls this week from New England-based students, and at least one third-year student will begin classes next week.

Undergraduate students may enroll as non-matriculating, Continuing and Professional, or CAP, students at Suffolk. The University has offered this placement to a displaced Loyola University, New Orleans, freshman after receiving a request from a local high school counselor. A number of Southern colleges also have offered this status to displaced students, and Suffolk University added its name to the list so that students from the New England region who had planned to begin class in the affected Southern states could be accommodated.

 Suffolk University, located on Boston's historic Beacon Hill, with campuses in Madrid, Spain and Dakar, Senegal (Africa), is a comprehensive global institution distinguished by its teaching and the intellectual contributions of its faculty. Suffolk offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs in more than 70 areas of study. Its mission is to provide quality education at a reasonable cost for students of all ages and backgrounds, with strong emphasis on diversity. Suffolk has a combined enrollment of more than 8,300 full-time and part-time students at its Law School, College of Arts and Sciences and Sawyer Business School.
