"This isn't a place where you will study all day and then go home. There are so many functions throughout the year that allow everyone to get to know one another. Other than socials and student clubs, intramurals and the annual Barrister's Bowl are great ways to meet other students.

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.
