Maison St. Charles Hotel (1319 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130)

ABI’s host hotel, Maison St. Charles is located on the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar Line, the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world. Only 5 minutes from the French Quarter, Central Business District, Louisiana Superdome, New Orleans Arena, Convention Center, Lee Circle Arts District, National D-Day Museum, the Aquarium of the Americas and New Orleans Cruise Ship Terminals.

Modern in every detail, many of our buildings nevertheless date back to a time when life was a bit slower, more genteel, and not quite so demanding. Then there was a deep appreciation of lovely surroundings, well-kept gardens, a certain sense of style and an attentive level of service. Guest rooms shown are typical of the accommodations at the Maison St. Charles.

ABI has reserved a block of hotel rooms at the hotel Maison St. Charles for $79 per/night being held until April 23. Call 800-831-1782 or 504-522-0187 for reservations and mention the group block reserved for the American Bankruptcy Institute. Additionally, transportation will be provided to and from Tulane University Law School, the Maison St. Charles Hotel and the Hale Boggs Federal Courthouse for Symposium participants.

Symposium Details

Symposium at Tulane Law School (Weinmann Hall, 6329 Freret Street)

Tulane Law School’s facilities include John Giffen Weinmann Hall, a 160,000-square-foot building opened in 1995, and the annex immediately adjacent to it, housing the Law School Career Development Office. Another annex building a few blocks away houses the Continuing Legal Education Department and accomodations for short-term visiting faculty. Weinmann Hall is located at 6329 Freret Street between Calhoun Street and McAlister Drive.

Weinmann Hall was designed and created solely for the needs of the Law School. It houses faculty, administration and student organization offices, as well as the Law Clinic. It also houses Tulane's outstanding library and computer facilities.

The Tulane University campus on which the law school is located is a 110-acre space in the uptown residential section of New Orleans. The campus is filled with flat green lawns, lined with azaleas and magnolias and southern oaks, all harmonizing with arched gray stone and pillared red brick buildings. The setting invites outdoor study and activity. Recent additions to the campus include the Reily Student Recreation Center, the Newcomb Art Gallery, and the Law School building itself, John Giffen Weinmann Hall.

The University campus faces St. Charles Avenue, a street lined for miles with mansions. Directly across St. Charles Avenue is Audubon Park. The neighborhood, while residential, contains enough commercial activity to make it enormously lively-coffee houses, grocery stores and drugstores, laundries, restaurants and bookstores abound.
