FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center (LSU Law Center) is the site where the Louisiana Supreme Court held court in Baton Rouge today as part of an ongoing effort to educate and inform students about the work of the Court. The Court heard oral arguments on two pending cases, one civil and one criminal case, in the Robinson Courtroom (Room 201) of the LSU Law Center.


Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson, who is an alumna of the LSU Law Center, and the Law Center Dean Thomas C. Galligan jointly announced the convening of the Court at LSU.


“For several years, the Supreme Court has been periodically holding court in parishes other than Orleans Parish where the Court is located. The goal is to provide area citizens with a snapshot of the volume, variety and complexity of the Court’s caseload by bringing the Louisiana Supreme Court to them,” Chief Justice Johnson said.


Dean Galligan added, “It’s an honor for the LSU Law Center to host the Louisiana Supreme Court. This visit is a tremendous opportunity for LSU Law students to see first hand the state’s highest court at work. It is incredibly exciting for us to welcome the Court.”


The last time the Louisiana Supreme Court sat at LSU Law Center was in 1998.
