LSU Law launches online portal for Law Center’s Student Emergency Relief Fund applications

LSU Law has created an online portal to service students who wish to apply for financial assistance through the Law Center’s Student Emergency Relief Fund while they are learning remotely.

“Supporting our law students and ensuring that they have all the resources they need to continue advancing their studies is our highest priority,” said LSU Law Interim Dean Lee Ann Lockridge. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide our students the opportunity to more easily access and benefit from the Law Center’s Student Emergency Relief Program, and we thank the AccessLex Institute for their incredibly generous contribution to our fund at this unprecedented moment for our nation and for our law students.”

Along with being able to apply for assistance online, students can also access information on the types of covered expenses through the relief fund, the process for determining assistance awards, details on award amounts, and eligibility requirements.

LSU Law students facing unexpected economic hardship can apply for up to $1,000 to assist with immediate, essential expenses through the Law Center’s Student Emergency Relief Fund. Students may not obtain emergency funding from both the Law Center Student Emergency Relief Fund and LSU’s similar Student Emergency Support Fund.

For more information, students may contact Karen Soniat at or (225) 938-7763. Students with temporary hardship who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses exceeding $1,000 should contact Assistant Dean Jake Henry at for additional referrals to the Financial Aid Office and other sources.
