"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."(more)
The LSU Law Center ranks 11th in the nation in the percentage of 2011 graduates employed in full-time, long-term legal jobs within nine months of graduation, according to an analysis published on June 25, 2012, by the Wall Street Journal.
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.
* The format of this chart is mandated by ABA Standard 509.
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.
