November 23, 2010

Kyle Duncan ('97), LSU Law Alumnus and the LA Department of Justice Appellate Chief, argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on October 6, 2010, representing the Orleans Parish District Attorney.  The case, Connick v. Thompson, centered around 42 U.S.C. 1983 "Brady violations".

Chancellor's Thanksgiving Greeting--In Gratitude for Our LSU Law Community
November 23, 2010

WeissThanksgiving.jpgAs we approach this season of Thanksgiving (and exams!), I hope that you will join me in reflecting on the many blessings we share, as individuals and as an LSU Law community.

As a community, we are bound together by a tradition that is more than a century “young”. Our tradition embraces LSU Law’s strong commitment to civil law teaching and scholarship.  Our tradition continues to feature teachers who demand much in the classroom but take pride in being available and accessible to students outside of the classroom.

More subtle perhaps, but just as central to the LSU Law tradition, is our sense of community. Students here balance their studies with time for personal growth, family, and friends. An LSU Law degree is not just a certificate of academic achievement, but a symbol of lifelong membership in a community of shared values and experiences.

This holiday season, I also am happy and thankful to report that, with every passing year, our community grows...
