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.
