The LSU Law Center is known for its demanding, yet personal, legal education. Our goal is to provide a dynamic and state-of-the art educational experience for our students, and your gifts allow us to do just that.  Your annual gifts or endowment gifts  provide the much-needed resources for today’s Law Center.

  • Name a non-endowed scholarship (minimum of $4,000 per year for five years.)
  • Give (any amount) to your class scholarship.
  • Give (any amount) to the General Scholarship Fund.

Support for Experiential Legal Education

  • Sponsor Apprenticeship Week.  The program will carry your name for the duration of the sponsorship. ($25,000 per year for minimum five years).

Current Building Projects

  • Support the Classroom to Courtroom project with your gift of any amount.  The project is renovating classrooms with structure and technology to enhance advocacy skills training while retaining the ability to function as a classroom/lecture space.
  • Renovations to the mezzanine of the library provide an opportunity for you to name a beautiful new study space that will be utilized by hundreds of students daily.  Spaces range from $250,000 for a study room to $1,000,000 for half the mezzanine.

There are many other opportunities to make a difference at your law school.  If you are interested in something you’ve read here or something you didn’t read here, please contact Jayla Wilson, Senior Gift Officer, at 225-588-8470, or Bobbi Zaunbrecher, External Relations Director, at 225-578-8705, to explore the possibilities.
