"I quickly realized how LSU Law maintains such a respectable reputation when I met the other students. LSU sets high admissions standards, so everyone enters law school with a background as the "top student" in their undergraduate curriculum. Having highly intelligent peers just enhances the overall quality of the education at LSU Law."(more)
The National Jurist magazine recognized LSU Law as the #1 school in the nation in terms of first-time bar passage ratios in a predictive statistical model based on LSAT scores. (February 2012)
At LSU Law, all merit based scholarships are conditional, which means that recipients must satisfy the retention requirements set forth in the scholarship notification.
Scholarship retention for conditional scholarships is evaluated once per academic year after spring semester grades are submitted to the Registrar.
This data reflects the number of students entering their first year at LSU Law with a conditional scholarship and the number of these students whose scholarships were reduced or eliminated following their first year at LSU Law.

It is LSU Law’s policy to reduce, not revoke, conditional scholarships for failure to meet retention requirements.
Scholarships, however, are revoked when a student is academically disqualified. This revocation is not retroactive. The scholarship is revoked to prevent an automatic entitlement to the scholarship award in the event that the student applies and is readmitted in the future. Formerly academically disqualified students who are readmitted must be reevaluated for scholarships with the current incoming class.
In light of LSU Law’s unique scholarship policy, we would like to further breakdown the information required by the ABA.
