"LSU Law offers not just simply an education, but a community of professors and administrators who truly care about each student or prospective student on a personal and educational level."
Louisiana State Agricultural & Mechanical College was established by an act of the legislature, approved to carry out the U.S. Morrill Act of 1862, granting lands for this purpose. It temporarily opened in New Orleans in 1874, where it remained until it merged with Louisiana State University in 1877.
A student's journey begins at the Law Center's Registrar's office. The process begins as potential students make their decision to invest the next three years of their lives in an institution of higher education that will determine their professional careers. The Registrar's Office provides an array of student-centered support and administrative services. Its day-to-day functions include managing course registration, maintaining student records, overseeing student notification of grades, monitoring graduation eligibility requirements, and assisting with bar registration procedures. Communication is a key factor between the faculty and students and the office provides information in written and verbal form, on an individual basis and in mass. Individual contact with the Office of Student Records is an integral part of a student's educational experience.
