"We have reached out in a number of ways through CLE to get a tremendous number of alumni involved in planning and presenting programs. Almost every CLE program – and we have more than anyone else in the state – is guided by an alumni committee."
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.
