Law Center Accredited by SACS

“I am delighted to report that the LSU Law Center has been accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award the J.D./D.C.L. (Graduate Diploma in Civil Law), and LL.M. degrees,” said Chancellor Jack Weiss upon receiving the news of the initial accreditation on December 7.

SACS is a private, nonprofit, voluntary organization founded in 1895 and located in Atlanta. The Commission on Colleges, as part of the Association, accredits higher education degree-granting institutions. The process for initial and continued accreditation involves a collective analysis and judgment by the institution’s internal constituencies; informed review by peers external to the institution; and a decision by elected members of the Commission on Colleges.

The Law Center accreditation was a multi-year process. The Law Center is deeply indebted to all who worked so hard to make our independent accreditation a reality.
