A Message from LSU Law Center Chancellor Jack M. Weiss It is my pleasure to introduce you to the LSU Law Center and to provide you with information on our outstanding program of legal education. LSU Law has a consistent record of success in preparing its graduates for admission to the bar and for employment in the legal profession. Viewed in the context of the relatively reasonable cost of an LSU Law education, we believe that our program offers one of the great values in American legal education. Indeed, LSU Law has been recognized as one of the top value law schools in the nation by a national publication that compared tuition costs at various law schools with their bar passage and employment rates. Students at LSU Law are trained rigorously in the same common law and federal law subjects that are taught at other leading American law schools. In addition, our students receive the unique perspective of the civil law tradition as it functions here in Louisiana and elsewhere in the world. Thus, the training we offer is not, as it is sometimes misinterpreted, training in a unique legal “gumbo� that can be consumed and applied only in Louisiana. It is rather, demanding American legal training plus in-depth training in the civil law. Thus we like to say that we are far more than a common law school. The LSU Law Center is the only United States law school and one of only two schools in the Western Hemisphere to offer a course of study leading to the simultaneous conferring of two degrees: Juris Doctor and the Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law, each of which recognizes the training LSU Law students receive in both the Common and the Civil Law. This joint degree program reflects the mixed civil and common law tradition of which the Law Center is the unique curator, and the preparation of LSU Law students for practice or service in the global, national, and state arenas. The national and global dimensions of the LSU Law educational program are paralleled by an outstanding faculty who take pride in excellent classroom teaching and personal interaction with students outside the classroom. We provide legal education that is demanding yet personal. Located on the beautiful main LSU campus in the state capital of Baton Rouge, LSU Law offers students a unique opportunity to live in a manageable but thriving metropolitan area that also is one of the great university towns in the nation. At the same time, the unique culture and attractions of New Orleans are barely more than an hour away. There is an active program of social activities designed to take full advantage of the LSU ambiance and to build strong relationships among students who hail from across the country and the globe. We invite you to learn more about why LSU Law is


A Tradition of Excellence The LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center is a national and international center for teaching, research, and public service in all aspects of the law. From our founding in 1906, LSU Law has been recognized for academic excellence, an outstanding faculty, and integrated programs in civil and common law. When combined with an international and comparative law focus, we offer a truly global legal education. Ranked among the top law schools in the country, LSU Law provides a rigorous yet personal legal education while providing students with the practical knowledge needed in today’s competitive legal market. ■■

LSU Law Center

Serving the State: LSU Law Centers and Institutes As a state-supported law school, LSU Law renders significant service to the Louisiana bar, bench and legislature. Through a variety of Centers and Institutes, LSU Law annually brings to the campus outstanding jurists, attorneys, and speakers, creating a dynamic educational environment in which to study. In 2012, the LSU Law Center, with the approval of the LSU Board of Supervisors and the Louisiana Board of Regents, created an academic center for comprehensive instruction and research in energy law.  The LSU John P. Laborde Energy Law Center will prepare lawyers to address the full range of 21st century issues in the complex energy sector. The Law Center is home to the Louisiana Law Institute, chartered by the Louisiana legislature as an official law revision committee, law reform agency, and legal research agency for the state of Louisiana. An LSU Law faculty member is director of the Louisiana Judicial College, which offers continuing education to the state’s judges. The George W. and Jean H. Pugh Institute for Justice provides support for research, educational and pro bono activities that promote justice for individuals in the administration of the criminal and civil justice systems in Louisiana and elsewhere. The Pugh Institute has welcomed Sister Helen Prejean, Barry Scheck, and Civil Rights pioneer Ruby Bridges as recent program speakers. The Mineral Law Institute, directed by an LSU Law faculty member, was created in 1953 as an annual continuing legal education program to promote an understanding of Louisiana mineral law and facilitate its development through educational activities. And, as established in 1965, the mission of the Center of Civil Law Studies is to promote and encourage the scientific study of the civil law system, its history, structure, principles, and actualities.

To be the first LSU law student to receive a Supreme

Court clerkship is special to me, particularly because I get

to play a role in continuing and enhancing the traditions of excellence that characterize an LSU law education. I hope that my clerkship at the Court encourages LSU law students, professors, judges, and employers to recognize the potential of LSU students to compete nationally and that it opens doors for more LSU law students to be successful.

Far more than a common law school


Degrees Offered J.D./D.C.L. (Juris Doctor and Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law) The LSU Law Center is the only United States law school and one of only two schools in the Western Hemisphere to confer two degrees upon graduation: the Juris Doctor (J.D.) and a Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law (D.C.L.). It’s why we say we’re Far More Than a Common Law School! Each of these degrees recognizes the extensive training LSU Law students receive in both Common Law and Civil Law. The Law Center’s legal program offers upperclass course options that permit students to focus on Louisiana-based courses or international and comparative law courses that are not directly rooted in Louisiana law. This distinctive joint degree program prepares our law students for practice or service in all 50 states and across the globe.

Dual Degree Programs In addition to earning a law degree, LSU Law students may earn a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) or Master of Science in Finance (M.S.) through the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business or a Master of Mass Communications (M.M.C.) through the LSU Manship School of Mass Communication. The combined degree programs are typically completed in four years, saving both time and money. Applicants must apply to each program seperately. ■■

J.D./D.C.L.-M.B.A. Program Students earn overlapping credit towards both degrees. The transfer of concurrent credit allows a student to complete the requirements for both degrees in four years. Each institution separately awards its degree. Students have the option of pursuing parallel degree programs with common areas of study. A student will be required initally to complete either the first year at the law school or the first year at the business school.


LSU Law Center

My education at the LSU Law Center has

allowed me to become a well-rounded professional. The curriculum was extremely challenging and gave me a solid foundation to start practicing.

Ashley Mayes, Class of 2011


J.D./D.C.L.-M.P.A. Program Students will spend the first consecutive fall and spring semesters as a full-time student in the Law Center. After completion of the first year in the Law Center, students simultaneously schedule both M.P.A. and law courses until the requirements for both degrees are fulfilled. Satisfactory completion of the requirements of the J.D./D.C.L.-M.P.A. program should take approximately three and one half years of full-time study (including summers).


J.D./D.C.L.-M.S. in Finance Program Students are required to complete the first year of law school and the first semester in the M.S. program before taking any courses for which concurrent credit is granted. Students can choose which program to begin first, but because the Law Center admits beginning law students only in the fall semester, a student who chooses to begin the concurrent degree program at the Ourso College will likely begin the M.S. program in the spring semester. Completion of the degree program requirements should take four years, instead of the five years that otherwise would be required.


J.D./D.C.L.-Master of Mass Communication Program Through this concurrent degree program, a student may receive both a Juris Doctor/Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law and a Master of Mass Communication in approximately four years. This program is designed to appeal both to those students who wish to specialize in First Amendment and communications law as practicing lawyers, and to those who wish to work as professionals in mass communication in fields related to law.

The J.D./M.M.C. program provides

opportunities for the lowest cost in both time and money.  I also think the unique perspectives of the law degree in the civil law will be beneficial outside of Louisiana because of the comparative focus between the common law and civil law and the opportunities in international law.

LSU Law has conducted a six-week summer program in France since 1985. The program attracts many internationally distinguished professors and lecturers who teach all classes in English. Lyon, France’s second largest city, is located in the center of the country and boasts a population of more than one million. Lyon is known as the silk capital of the world and is a center for exhibitions, concerts, performances, shows, and events. Enjoy the lively social and arts scene and world-class dining! Lyon’s central location is ideal for travelling. Classes are held four days a week, allowing participants extended weekends to travel all over Europe. In the past, popular destinations within France have included Paris, Avignon, Annency, Normandy, and the French Riviera. Possible destinations outside of France include Munich, Florence, Rome, Cinque Terre, Geneva, Pamplona, Barcelona, Monaco, and Amsterdam. Lyon provides students with much to see and do outside of school. The city’s diverse neighborhoods are dotted with monuments and buildings ranging from ancient Roman, to Renaissance, to modern architecture. There are also vivid cultural events and a very active nightlife in the city. Lyon is located in the heart of the Rhône valley, a region known for the quality of its wine and traditional cuisine.

Or other European and South American Countries… The Law Center has partnered with universities in Belgium, France*, Italy, the Netherlands*, and the UK* for student exchange and international internships.

Prepared to Practice LSU Law Center graduates possess skills and knowledge that can be applied in common law practice throughout the nation, in international practice globally, and in Louisiana civil practice. The Law Center’s dynamic Clinical Legal Education Program, Externship Program, top-ranked Moot Court Program, and Appellate Advocacy Program offer an opportunity to gain real-world experience while receiving credit toward the law degree.

The Law Clinic is a self-contained legal services office located in the Law Center where students are certified to practice law pursuant to Louisiana Supreme Court Rule XX. Through the Law Clinic, the Law Center offers second- and third-year students the opportunity to practice law and represent indigent clients in Baton Rouge and surrounding communities. The Law Clinic is analogous to a residency in medical school where, under close faculty supervision, students practice by representing real clients with real legal issues. Students practice in local courts, before administrative agencies and other venues.

Externships offer an exciting opportunity to augment law school classroom study with real-world work experience. The Law Center’s location in Baton Rouge, the state capital, offers tremendous advantages to placing students with state and local governmental agencies and courts where students can experience the real practice of law through a structured academic setting. Externships are also available in New Orleans, only a little more than an hour away from Baton Rouge. Externship students consistently comment that an externship was one of the most valuable experiences of law school. The Externship program places selected students with local, state, and federal government agencies, judicial chambers at both the state and federal level, and not-for-profit agencies. Students are enrolled in a three-credit pass-fail course in conjunction with their work experience. The coursework involves an ethics orientation, practical skills training, and critical reflection on the legal work experience. Externships are available during the fall and spring semesters at placements within Louisiana. Over 60 students each semester are placed in an externship. 10

The Law Center Campus The LSU Law Center is a cornerstone of Louisiana State University’s beautiful and historic campus. Centrally located on the LSU campus, the Law Center facilities include two interconnected buildings. The Law Center completed a $16 million renovation to the campus in 2003, which resulted in an expanded, modern complex that includes state-of-theart technology and a Law Library that holds one of the richest comparative law collections in the nation.

The Old Law Building was designed in the style of the U.S. Supreme Court. Students and faculty moved into the building in 1937. The Old Law Building houses the offices of the Louisiana Law Institute, the Center of Civil Law Studies, the Louisiana Judicial College, and the Center of Continuing Professional Development. It also includes offices for student organizations and activities. There is the McKernan Auditorium used by guest lecturers and visiting experts, faculty offices, the Tucker Room which houses the collection of civil law materials, classrooms, the newly opened Clinical Education area, and several floors of library holdings.

The Law Center East Annex, better known as the “new” 1969 building, provides classroom areas, seminar rooms, discussion rooms, and meeting areas; library offices and facilities including open stack areas on all four floors and carrels for student research; a practice court room; and administrative and faculty offices. The Student Lounge offers space for study and socializing, and features a coffee shop and eatery.

The Law Library, in addition to the standard AngloAmerican legal materials, has substantial collections of foreign, international, and comparative law, with particular strengths in European, Latin American, and British Commonwealth jurisdictions. It is a selective depository for U.S. Government documents and Louisiana documents, and a depository for Louisiana Supreme Court and Courts of Appeal briefs and records. The Library’s mission is to support the legal scholarship and educational activities of the Paul M. Hebert Law Center; to serve its faculty, staff, students, and alumni; and to offer assistance to the Louisiana legal community, the general public, and other educational institutions.
