"When comparing law schools, I was extremely concerned about not only the quality of my legal education, but also the amount of money I would end up paying for that education. I was accepted to multiple schools all over the country but stuck with LSU because I will graduate with a smaller amount of debt and will have received an excellent education."
In 2012, the LSU Law Center received formal approval from the Louisiana Board of Regents and the LSU Board of Supervisors to establish an Energy Law Center, the first such center in Louisiana and one of a handful operating in law schools nationwide. The Center prepares lawyers for the full range of 21st century practice in the complex world of energy law. The Graduate Certificate in Energy Law and Policy (the “Energy Certificate”) allows the Paul M. Hebert Law Center to officially recognize students who have demonstrated substantial competence in the study of energy law and related subject matter.
