Renovation to add new courtroom in LSU Law Center classroom underway

Thanks to the generous donation of more than $100,000 by two dozen LSU Law alumni and supportive law firms, a renovation of Room 107 in the Paul M. Hebert Law Center to include a courtroom in the classroom is underway. The Class of 2020 also dedicated their class gift to the campaign.

Led by LSU Law alumni and adjunct faculty members Ed Walters and Frank Holthaus, the Alumni Courtroom Committee launched a fundraising campaign last year to begin adding courtrooms to as many as five classrooms in the Law Center.

The renovations will provide LSU Law students with more courtroom experiences inside the classroom and additional space for 35 Moot Court and Trial Advocacy teams to practice and compete.

Those interested in donating to the effort can contact Karen Soniat at or (225) 578-8645. LSU Law thanks the following alumni and law firms who have already donated:
