‘Louisiana Law Review’ selects 16 Junior Associates for publication in Volume 82, names Board of Editors

The Louisiana Law Review Volume 81 Board of Editors has announced the 16 Junior Associates selected for publication in Volume 82, noting the decision process was extremely difficult this year due of the number of well-written student pieces.

Since 1938, the Louisiana Law Review has served as Louisiana’s flagship legal journal and has become a vibrant forum for scholarship in comparative and civil law topics. It currently ranks in the top 200 student-edited journals, and among the top 50 journals for the highest number of cases citing to a law review. Louisiana Law Review scholars have been recognized around the world for their contributions to both common and civil law doctrine. Publication in the journal is an incredible honor, and LSU Law congratulate those selected for publication:
