LL.M. News

Friday, August 9, 2019, marked a highlight in the LL.M. Orientation, with a field trip to New Orleans including a visit to the Supreme Court of Louisiana, located in the superbly renovated court building at 400 Royal Street. With five J.D. students driving our international students, team-building opportunities were optimal, and even improved as a former LL.M. and a group of legal interns from France and Quebec joined the group both for lunch and a walking tour of the French Quarter.
LSU Law thanks Trina Vincent and Robert Gunn for the tour of the Museum and Court Building, Miriam Child, Director of the Law Library of Louisiana, for the visit of the Rare Books Room, and David Rigamer for the photos.
