Besides an extensive knowledge of the subject matter he teaches, the students of the Law Center consider Coenen to be an engaging, encouraging, and thought-provoking professor. When asked why he/she voted for Coenen, one student responded, “Professor Coenen could not be more deserving of this award. He makes learning the law fun and entertaining, which is no easy feat. From his ridiculous hypotheticals to our wide-ranging discussions, his lectures are always memorable. He will be missed at LSU.”

Coenen joined the Law Center faculty in 2013, having previously served as a Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School. He holds an A.B. in Music from Princeton University, where he graduated summa cum laude, and a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was an Articles Editor for the Yale Law Journal.

After graduating from law school, he clerked for Judge Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
