The LSU Black Law Students Association (BLSA) and the LSU Law Center recently welcomed the Honorable Brian Jackson, Chief Judge of the U.S. Middle District Court, as the final speaker of the semester for BLSA’s Leadership Lecture Series.

“Through the Leadership Lecture Series we have sought to foster a dialogue about transitioning from life as a law student to life as an attorney, in addition to contributing to the professional development of our members,” said Andrew Hairston, LSU BLSA President.

Louisiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson (’69) kicked off the series in September. Other speakers throughout the academic year include Darrel Papillion (’94), President-Elect of the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Honorable Trudy White (’81), Baton Rouge Councilman John Delgado and State Representative Ted James.

“As a group, the LSU BLSA Executive Board hopes that the Leadership Lectures Series marks the beginning of a new tradition for our chapter,” Hairston added.
