LL.M. News

Professor Olivier Moréteau, the Program Director, Christabelle Lefebvre, the Program Coordinator, and the LL.M. Class of 2017 welcome you to apply to our LL.M. in Comparative Law, one of the best gateways to American Law and Practice. Visit our Admission page, and do not hesitate to contact us and request a Skype meeting with the program director, coordinator and/or students.

As part of the Introduction to United States Law class, Professor Moréteau invited three State Judges to present on criminal justice in Louisiana and the United States, sharing on their experience as judges, prosecutors, and also adjunct professors at the LSU Law Center, with our international law graduate students. The late Professor Cheney Joseph used to coordinate the event, and this year’s session brought his memory to the classroom.

The Law Center thanks Judge Doug Moreau, Judge Lou Daniel (19th Judicial District Court), and Judge Guy Holdridge (Louisiana Court of Appeal, 1st Circuit), who appear left to right on the photo, for their participation to what happened to be an animated, spirited, and at times passionate conversation, bringing comparative and cultural perspectives.

On September 27, LL.M. candidates had an opportunity to meet with the faculty and mix with student members of the International Law Society and Hispanic Law Student Association, sharing happy moments.

On August 5th, 2016, Prof. O. Moréteau and Christabelle Lefebvre accompanied the five new LL.M. candidates to New Orleans for a team-building and sightseeing tour, including a visit to the Louisiana Supreme Court and the Louisiana Law Library, in the splendid court building at 400 Royal Street. The visit of the Rare Books Room is always a highlight!
