We have officially changed our stripes! Chancellor’s Council is now the Law Dean’s Council. We have the same purpose and benefits but a new name to reflect the leadership of Dean Thomas Galligan.

Hebert Law Center; Office of Alumni Relations; 110 LSU Student Union Building; Baton Rouge, LA 70803-0106.
