Common + Civil Law
LSU Law Center's "crossroad curriculum" provides a unique and intense legal education that gives LSU law graduates qualifications not developed by other American law schools.
The LSU Law Center is the only United States law school and one of only two schools in the Western Hemisphere to offer a course of study leading to the simultaneous conferring of two degrees: Juris Doctor and the Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law, each of which recognizes the training LSU Law students receive in both the Common and the Civil Law. This joint degree program reflects the mixed civil and common law tradition of which the Law Center is the unique curator, and the preparation of LSU Law students for practice or service in the global, national, and state arenas.
