The LSU Law Center community mourns the loss of our beloved Interim Co-Dean Cheney C. Joseph, Jr., who passed away this morning, December 18, 2015.

We all are blessed to have known and loved this great lawyer, professor, and man, whose spirit and influence will live forever through his family, friends, colleagues, students and graduates. We will not see his like again.
