"LSU Law prepared me for the future by investing in the appellate advocacy and trial competitions. My experience with those, particularly the appellate advocacy competition, will most certainly make my first appearances before a judge more comfortable."
LSU has produced a number of distinguished undergraduates, including four Marshall Scholars, 24 Goldwater Scholars, 14 Rhodes Scholars, four Truman Scholars, and more than 25 Fulbright Scholars.
Thank you so much for your interest in the LSU Law Center. LSU is comprised of a caring faculty, staff, and student body. We offer an excellent legal education and our students learn in an atmosphere that stresses the highest level of professional responsibility. Our faculty members are dedicated teachers whose doors are always open to students.
We welcome your application. The deadline to apply is March 1, however, most students apply before late December.
LSU’s location is optimal. Situated on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, LSU is the flagship university and the nexus of legendary Tiger country. As a law student, you will have access to the capital city of Baton Rouge, the seat of government, education, and industry in Louisiana. You will also have the distinct advantage of being part of a major university campus.
I look forward to reviewing your application. Please feel free to contact me should you have any specific questions. I also encourage you to visit during the application process, where you may sit in on a class, speak with current students and faculty, and tour our facilities. Please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit or if you have questions regarding the application process. I wish you much success throughout the application process!
