The LSU Law Center is known for its demanding, yet personal, legal education. Our goal is to provide a dynamic and state-of-the art educational experience for our students, and your gifts allow us to do just that.  Your annual gifts or endowment gifts  provide the much-needed resources for today’s Law Center.

The LSU Law Center is focused on strategic priorities that will transform legal education and develop the next generation of leaders for our state and nation.  These five priorities include:

  • Supporting students via scholarships
  • Promoting and funding experiental learning programs to better prepare students for the world of work
  • Furthering the Energy Law program and Laborde Energy Law Center to bridge the coast, energy and environment issues impacting the state and nation
  • Preserving and enriching the Bjural (civil) legal traditions of Louisiana as a means of advancing arts and culture, and
  • Creating joint programs with LSU, to foster research, catalyze economic development and improve the health and well being of the state’s citizens.

Together, we can build a legal community to help change the world!
