Tulane’s international and comparative law activities have a firm institutional base in the Eason-Weinmann Center of Comparative Law, created through the generosity of former Ambassador to Finland and Chief of Protocol of the United States Department of State, John Weinmann, and his wife, Virginia Eason Weinmann. The Center, successor to the Ford and Rockefeller Foundation-funded Institute of Comparative Law at Tulane, which began in 1949, is Tulane’s vehicle for enriching its regular academic programs. Its Director and Chair is Eason-Weinmann Professor of Comparative Law, Thanassi Yiannopoulos. The Center routinely brings to the Law School eminent scholars of comparative law from around the world to serve as lecturers or to participate in colloquia on topics arising out of comparative law. Since 1981, fifteen colloquia or other international gatherings have been hosted by the Eason-Weinmann Center of Comparative Law at Tulane Law School, attracting scholars from over 20 countries and at least 30 US law schools. Colloquia topics have covered an array of subjects, from comparative examinations of particular areas of law such as labor relations or torts, to broader looks at the internationalization of law and legal practice, the reconstruction of legal institutions in Eastern Europe, or the impact of European integration.
