‘Louisiana Law Review,’ ‘Journal of Energy Law and Resources’ announce publication selections

LSU Law’s student-edited legal journals—Louisiana Law Review and the Journal of Energy Law and Resources—have announced the articles they will publish in upcoming volumes.

The Louisiana Law Review Volume 80 Board of Editors says the decision process for the Junior Associates selected for publication in Volume 81 was extremely difficult because of the number of well-written student pieces.

Likewise, The Journal of Energy Law and Resources Volume VIII Editorial Board says the limited number of spots for publication in Volume IX, along with the high volume of excellent papers from Junior Associates, made the publication decision process very challenging.

Here are the students and articles selected for publication:
