This scholarship was created from an estate gift of Norma Ericson. Jean Ericson was a librarian at the LSU Law Center and worked closely with Professor Kate Wallach. Ericson retired in July 1975 and moved to Arizona with her sister, Norma. Norma Ericson left a gift to the LSU Law Center to fund this scholarship in the name of her sister. This scholarship is awarded in fall and spring, and its recipient is chosen at the descretion of the Scholarship Committee.
