Young Alumni Leadership Council

The Young Alumni Leadership Council was established in the fall of 2007 by Chancellor Jack Weiss to provide a conduit for communication between the LSU Law Center and its most recent graduates.  The Council is made up of members from recent graduating classes.  Members are selected by the Chancellor based on a demonstrated record of leadership, commitment to the Law Center and the ability to contribute insightfully to Council discussions. The Council meets with the Chancellor twice a year and advises him on a range of issues, both in the course of those meetings and at other times throughout the year.
