"The curriculum offers a wide variety of subject matter. Not only is the variety good, but areas such as tax law and intellectual property have surprising depth due to the number of classes offered."
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.
Information for Public
Currently the LSU Law Clinic does not accept clients through either a ‘walk-in’ or ‘phone-in’ intake process. The Law Clinic only accepts clients through referrals by community agencies or courts. Also, the Law Clinic currently only offers assistance for clients seeking protection from domestic violence, juveniles charged with delinquent acts, individuals with immigration issues, and families seeking mediation in family disputes. At this time, the Law Clinic does not offer services in any other areas of the law. If you are in need of legal assistance, please do not contact the Law Clinic directly. Instead, please contact the relevant agency directly and seek assistance.
If you have been charged with a crime and cannot afford a lawyer, please contact the Public Defender’s Office in the Parish where you have been charged. The Public Defender for East Baton Rouge can be reached at 225/389-3150.
If you have a non-criminal matter, please contact the Louisiana Civil Justice Center for an intake and they will try to match you with an appropriate legal service provider. Its number is 800-310-7029. Also, a good online resource with links to legal service providers across the state is http://www.lawhelp.org/LA/
