Employers and Legal Community

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.

The school’s winning moot court teams, professional skills training in research and writing, extensive externships and pro bono opportunities — combined with LSU law students’ energy and willingness to work hard — mean that LSU Law grads hit the ground running, wherever their careers take them.

LSU Law houses six centers and institutes that focus on scholarly research and public attention on a variety of relevant issues: The Center of Civil Law Studies, John P. Laborde Energy Law Center, Mineral Law Institute, Pugh Institute for Justice, Louisiana Law Institute and Judicial College.

In addition, the Law and Medicine Program, the only law school-based program devoted to public health issues, features a cooperative endeavor with Pennington Biomedical Center— one of the world’s finest nutrition research centers — addressing obesity and other public health issues.

LSU Law Continuing Legal Education offers numerous seminars throughout the year in a variety of subject matters for legal professionals. Seminars are approved for mandatory continuing legal education (CLE) credit hours in Louisiana.
