Due to the exponential rise of COVID-19 cases in our community in recent weeks and the challenges the current pandemic situation creates for event planning, we must sadly announce that our Reunion Weekend and All-Alumni Tailgate will not take place as scheduled on Oct. 1-2. 

After all we have endured throughout the pandemic, we were planning for our Reunion Weekend and All-Alumni Tailgate to mark a cathartic return to the traditions that have long brought our LSU Law family together in celebration. However, we clearly have not yet reached a point where we can plan for and host large in-person events, particularly crowded or indoor events with food and drink, while ensuring the health and safety of all attendees. 

We will continue to closely monitor pandemic conditions and explore alternative options for celebrating our reunion classes at a time when we can safely do so, and we will keep you informed as we move forward. If you have questions about our Reunion Weekend and All-Alumni Tailgate, please contact Gigi Gauthier at 225-578-0733 or

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this disappointing announcement. We greatly appreciate all alumni who had volunteered for reunion committees, as well as NeunerPate and CSRS, which were to sponsor our All-Alumni Tailgate. We hope you and your family will remain safe and healthy as we continue to navigate the pandemic, we appreciate your contributions to our LSU Law family, and we eagerly look forward to seeing you when the time is right.

Meet LSU Law Class of 1985 Scholarship Recipient Damian Olvera

Damian Olvera

“I will never forget those who paved a way for me, and I will forever pay it forward.”
Damian Olvera, 1L

Damian grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas, and is a graduate of Texas A & M University – Corpus Christi. He is a Mexican-American first generation law student who came to law school to open more doors for his family and to ultimately serve his community. Following an internship at the Port of Corpus Christi, he became interested in maritime law, and he hopes to give back to the city and help expand the industry in the area.

When asked what the scholarship award meant to him, Damian said, “I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous gift to my academic journey. Your gift means so much to me and to my family back home. Awarding me this gift will have a compound effect to every community I am a part of. I will never forget those who paved a way for me, and I will forever pay it forward.”

Give To Your Class Scholarship

We hope that your reunions will make you think about your own law school experience and how important your education has been in your life and livelihood. Many things have changed, including the cost to obtain a law degree. In-state tuition and fees exceed $23,000 per year. Please make a gift to make a difference in the life of an LSU Law student.


At their 40th class reunion in October 2018, members of the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center Class of 1978 posed with a check for their endowed scholarship. The class raised the final $10,000 in the weeks following the reunion.
