Many LSU Law students and alumni have been directly affected by flooding in Texas and southwest Louisiana.

For LSU Law students: It’s tough to be away at law school while your home state is suffering through a major disaster. We know that your heart is with your family, and we hope that everyone remains safe and secure.

For alumni: You will always be a member of the LSU Law family. Our thoughts are with you, your families and colleagues, and we stand ready to help you with your recovery.

For law school students in Texas directly affected by Harvey: After last year’s flooding in Baton Rouge, we at LSU Law know all too well what you’re going through with losing possessions and an uncertainty on the future.

If you need resources to help you through these trying times, LSU Law is here for you.

If you are in need of assistance of any kind — whether it be notes from missed classes or counseling help or financial assistance  — click the “I need assistance” button below and it will direct you to a form where you can enter what you need.

If you wish to donate goods or volunteer, click the “I want to help” button to be directed to that form.

When filling out the forms, please be as specific as possible in the intended areas. For instance, “I need or I can provide: socks, towels, food, soap, taking care of a pet, a casebook for a class, etc.”

If you are in need of assistance or wish to help and would rather speak directly to a member of the LSU Law Center, you may contact Pam Hancock or Professor Jeff Brooks.

As Texas and Louisiana residents work toward getting back to normal, we thank everyone for their well wishes and desire to help.
