"I am still amazed that I am taught by the people who actually had a hand in making the laws of the state or wrote the treatises that we all rely upon for help. Sometimes I feel as though I have a backstage pass to know what is going on and what the true intent of laws are by listening to their stories."
The LSU Law Center is named in honor of Paul M. Hebert, dean of the school from 1937 - 1977. During that time, Hebert also served periodically as Acting President of LSU, Dean of the University, and Civilian Judge in the Nuremberg Tribunal. LSU Law Center's global role as a center for legal scholarship is rooted in his expansion and guidance of the school's research and study assets.
