As we finish our first day of classes, I wanted to update you on what we are doing for people who have not been able to make it to classes, discuss opportunities to help others and to get assistance, and invite you to lunch tomorrow (Thursday). Let me begin with lunch. Tomorrow, we will have pizza and water for all students, faculty, and staff in the student lounge from noon until 1:30 PM (or when food runs out).
Nearly 40 LSU Law alums and 11 judges came out to the LSU Law Center to help 3L students in the annual Trial Advocacy and Persuasion Training Program. The program, which was held Aug. 8-10, gave students the opportunity for hands-on trial experience as they presented opening and closing arguments; depositions; and direct and cross examinations.
The LSU Law Center will be open and classes will begin Wednesday. It will be good to get back to doing what we do best: teaching and learning in a collaborative educational setting.
LSU has just announced that, other than some limited activities, the campus will be closed tomorrow (Tuesday). That means there will be no Law Center classes tomorrow. We promise that as soon as we know about classes and reopening on Wednesday, we will let you know. Keep checking for emails, texts, tweets, and posts.
The MPRE scheduled for Sat., Aug. 13 at LSU has been cancelled.
From cross examination to voir dire jury selection, students will role play and receive critiques from some of the nation’s leading experts in courtroom practices during the intensive three-day program held at the LSU Law Center. Participants will act as trial counsel and simulate actual trial skills under the experienced eyes of the select seminar faculty.
