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.

Professor Ed Richards was quoted by The Advocate in an article about the risks businesses face if they don't follow Gov. John Bel Edwards' mask mandate and social distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic. Richards said: "Businesses not following social distancing rules may also face potential liability, including higher worker compensation premiums and health care benefit bills, if workers get sick."

Professor Ray Diamond was quoted by WVLA-TV in a report about a 25-member legislative task force that is examining police practices including hiring, training, communication, and community relation practices, citing concerns of implicit racism and the disproportionate number of Black citizens killed by officers. Diamond is a member of the task force, which includes state legislators, law enforcement leaders, civil rights advocates, and attorneys.
