Frank L. Maraist, long-time LSU law professor, agreed to work with existing staff, Glynn Pellegrin, Scott Harrington, Stephanie Lindsly, and Joan Abbott to create a community committee to meet the continuing education needs of our alumni by engaging them in the course work and method of dissemination. Professor Maraist gathered an impressive cadre of bench and bar to aid in the production of some 11 specialty programs per year.
The world of continuing education is opening up and LSU law is on the cutting edge of these changes. The Louisiana State Supreme Court has granted approval for offering online presentations. LSU Law has contracted with West, a Thomson business, to provide these cutting edge classes. Online presentations should be fully operational by Fall 2004.
