"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."
The LSU Law Center is named in honor of Paul M. Hebert, dean of the school from 1937-77. During that time, Hebert also served periodically as Acting President of LSU, Dean of the University and Civilian Judge in the Nuremberg Tribunal. LSU Law Center's global role as a center for legal scholarship is rooted in his expansion and guidance of the school's research and study assets.
