Thanks to a required focus on both civil and common law–and a natural comparative focus from the curricular coexistence of the two—LSU Law Center graduates offer unique skills that can be applied in Louisiana civil practice, common law practice for the other 49 states and international engagement.
LSU Law Center’s rigorous curriculum, the quality and accessibility of the faculty, and our unsurpassed record over time in state bar passage rates mean LSU Law students have the training, knowledge and skills needed for successful employment. Our students are able to pursue individual career plans, whether in Louisiana, another state or internationally.
For LSU Law graduates and legal professionals, the Center of Continuing Professional Development extends the knowledge and resources of the LSU Law Center to the Louisiana Bar. The Center offers some 20 professional development seminars each year in various locations throughout Louisiana. It is the premier provider of continuing legal education in the state.
