Civil Mediation Clinic Students Published in Louisiana Bar Journal

Michael Finkelstein and Joshua Dierker, students in the LSU Law Center’s Civil Mediation Clinic, were published in the October/November issue of the Louisiana Bar Journal in the “Recent Developments” section.  Finkelstein wrote about the recent National Football League dispute and Dierker noted the Louisiana Supreme Court’s decision in FIA CardServs., N.A. v. Weaver, 10-1372 (La. 3/15/11), 62 So.3d 709.  The students’ work was part of a class project designed by Adjunct Clinical Professor Paul Breaux.

The Civil Mediation Clinic is one of five clinical programs offered at the Law Center.  Other clinical programs at the Law Center include Juvenile Defense, Family Mediation, Immigration, and Family Law & Family Violence.  Through the Law Clinic, the Law Center offers second and third-year students the opportunity to practice law and represent indigent clients in the Baton Rouge community.  The Law Clinic is a self-contained legal services office located in the Law Center where students are certified to practice law pursuant to Louisiana Supreme Court Rule XX.
