Faculty and Staff

LSU Law relies on the strength of its dynamic faculty and staff. The Law Center is comprised of 19 departments and:

LSU Law faculty consider teaching their primary responsibility. They devote much of their time to teaching classes, as well as conducting review sessions, meeting with individual students and study groups, and advising students on individual projects.

Outside of the classroom, faculty are known for their scholarship. Louisiana courts often cite the writings of the LSU Law faculty in their decisions, and many faculty members have written the principal Louisiana treaties in their areas of expertise.

From Admissions to Student Records, the LSU Law staff’s main focus is its students. Staff members are located throughout the LSU Law building and can be found through the directory.

Scholarship & Service

Professor Ray Diamond’s work, coauthored with George Washington University Law Professor Robert J. Cottrol, has been published in Volume 54 of the Connecticut Law Review. “Helpless by Law: Enduring Lessons from a Century-Old Tragedy” examines questions of violence and self-defense in African American History, contrasting the historical patterns of racist anti-Black violence prevalent in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, as exemplified by the destruction of the Greenwood community in Tulsa Oklahoma in 1921, with the current phenomenon of Black-on-Black violence in modern inner-city communities.

Professor Keith Hall is quoted by Energywire in an article about the fine line President Joe Biden is walking between taking aggressive climate action and promoting new oil and gas leasing, and the legal issues regarding his latest approach.

Professor Keith Hall is quoted by Gas Outlook in an article about the issues that are restraining U.S. shale output growth.

Professor Ken Levy and Indiana University Bloomington Maurer School of Law Professor Jody Madeira have co-authored an op-ed titled "Sophistry at the Supreme Court" that has been published by The Hill. In the op-ed, Levy and Madeira argue that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito's draft decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization falsely assumes that constitutional rights must be either explicitly stated or "deeply rooted in [our] history and tradition."

Professor Lisa Avalos served as an invited plenary speaker at the End Violence Against Women International Annual Conference in San Francisco on April 20. She spoke with three others on “Sexually Assaulted, Disbelieved, Prosecuted and Acquitted: Lessons from Washington County, Virginia.” On April 21, she and co-presenters Carl Hershman and Dyanie Bermeo gave a further workshop at the conference titled “Raped Then Prosecuted for False Reporting: Lessons from the Field.”
