Chancellor’s Council Salutes Saúl Litvinoff

The Law Center’s Chancellor’s Council will pay tribute to Boyd Professor Saúl Litvinoff at a gala planned for Friday, March 20, 2009 at the Coast, Energy, and Environment Building on the LSU campus.  

Chancellor Jack Weiss has declared 2008-09 the Year of Litvinoff in honor of the professor’s retirement. Litvinoff will assume the status of Professor Emeritus when he steps down after the Spring 2009 semester. He has taught over four generations of students in his 43 years of service to the Law Center

“Saúl Litvinoff will go down in history as one of the greatest scholars and teachers of Louisiana law,” said Law Center Chancellor Jack Weiss. “He has taught generations of LSU lawyers. His scholarship has shaped our legal tradition for more than 40 years.”

Ava Leavell Haymon and Cordell Haymon (’68), life-long friends of the professor, have honored him with a named endowed professorship.

The Chancellor’s Council is comprised of friends and alumni who annually support the Law Center at the leadership level of the Annual Fund-a contribution of $1,000 or more. Professor Litvinoff has been a member of the council for many years. Nearly 240 alums and friends joined the professor as council members in 2008.
