This endowed scholarship is awarded to an upperclass student who is an active SBA officer, class representative, and/or a Moot Court Board officer or member.
The scholarship honors Jane Bode, and was established by classmates and friends who loved and respected her. “She was a fantastic person and my best friend,” mused classmate John B. Perry ’80. “We felt lucky to have her as part of our lives.” Jane was both an LSU undergrad (1974) and a 1980 graduate of LSU Law. During law school she was a Section Representative, Student Bar Association Secretary and a member of the Moot Court Board. Jane died in a 1987 plane crash, cutting short a career that was characterized by service. The Louisiana State Bar recognized her for her pro bono service later the same year.
