2016 Press Releases


(504) 310-2590

 OCTOBER 5, 2016


Louisiana State University (LSU) Paul M. Hebert Law Center Professor William R. Corbett has been named Faculty Advisor of the Louisiana Judicial College. The Judicial College is the judicial education arm of the Louisiana Supreme Court whose mission is to provide quality and relevant continuing legal education for Louisiana judges. Corbett returns to the Judicial College after having served as Executive Director 16 years ago.

According to Ninth Judicial District Court Judge and Judicial College Board President Patricia Koch, “Professor Corbett was the unanimous choice of the Judicial College Board. As Faculty Advisor, he will provide information and analysis on state, national and international legal trends and on state and federal legislation affecting the College. He will also prepare and revise benchbooks and other best practices and will further ensure that the vision, mission and goals of the College are met.”

Corbett received his B.A. from Auburn University and his J.D. from the University of Alabama where he was Editor-in-Chief of the Alabama Law Review and a member of Order of the Coif. He holds the Frank L. Maraist Professorship and the Wex S. Malone Professorship at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center. He has been a faculty member of LSU since 1991. In 25 years on the faculty, Corbett has taught Labor Law, Employment Law, Employment Discrimination, Comparative Labor Law, Torts, Relational Torts, Federal Civil Procedure, and Louisiana Civil Procedure. He was Interim Co-Dean of the LSU Law Center during the 2015-2016 academic year.

Additionally, Corbett has served as Executive Director of the Louisiana Association of Defense Counsel since 2001, with responsibility for arranging and administering the continuing legal education programs of the organization. From 1998-2001, he had similar responsibilities while serving as the Executive Director of the Louisiana Judicial College.

“It is a great honor to have the opportunity to work with the Judicial College as Faculty Advisor. I am humbled to carry on the tradition of law professors who have worked with the Judicial College, including Professors Frank Maraist, Alston Johnson, and Tom Galligan. It is a poignant honor to follow my dear friend Professor Cheney Joseph, who served as Executive Director for many years and was named by the Louisiana Supreme Court as the Executive Director Emeritus before his untimely passing in December 2015,” Professor Corbett said.
