November 2008 Faculty/Staff News Items
- LSU Law Professor Paul R. Baier presented his model of an Honors Law course, which he has taught for more than a decade at LSU Law, at the National Collegiate Honors Council’s annual conference in San Antonio, Texas.
- Baier also successfully represented Secretary of State Jay Dardenne in the U.S. Supreme Court. Along with LSU Law alumna Celia Cangelosi, Baier opposed a stay application filed with Justice Antonin Scalia by the Libertarian Party, which challenged a ruling by the Fifth Circuit keeping the Libertarian Party off the November Presidential election ballot because of its failure to comply in a timely fashion with the state’s filing requirements for ballot access. Scalia referred the application to the full Court, which issued an order of denial.
