Please note that LSU Law’s Commencement exercises and all student-related activities have been postponed due to the Corona Virus.

From Interim Dean Lee Ann Lockridge:

“We will hold something lovely for our students when we can meet three criteria:
(1) it is safe to do so and

(2) it works for most of you and

(3) we can give you sufficient notice to plan on it.”


Please be reminded to pay all fees by May 22 to the LSU Bursar’s office.

You may still order announcements and rings from Balfour.

The crawfish boil is cancelled for now, and all students will be refunded full  payments.
