THE WORK OF THE PUGH INSTITUTE

Back

The George W. and Jean H. Pugh Institute for Justice is a tax exempt, charitable organization founded in 1998 to provide support for research, educational, and pro bono activities that will promote justice for individuals in the administration of the criminal and civil justice systems in the State of Louisiana and elsewhere. To date, the Institute has raised approximately $175,000 in contributions from former students of Professor Pugh. Its goal is to establish, through additional gifts, a total endowment of at least $500,000.
