The LL.M .Class of 2010 is interacting enthusiastically with the LSU Law Center community. Several events have been held in the Fall, and the LL.M. students had the opportunity to meet and socialize with law faculty members and other members of the student body. Nine graduate students are discovering American law in a comparative perspective. See their profiles.
As part of International Law Week, an LL.M. & ILS Student-Faculty Mixer took place in the Tucker Room at the LSU Law Center. LL.M. candidates were introduced to the faculty and students. A reception followed.
The newly created LL.M. Dialogue Series offers LL.M. students a monthly opportunity to listen to and interact with lawyers or scholars having an international or relevant experience. In August, Ibrahim Abdouraoufi, a native of Cameroun and doctoral student in Lyon, France, where he is a teaching and research assistant, spoke about the harmonization of business law in Africa. In September, Michel Séjean, who worked as an Assistant Professor of Law in France and is writing a doctoral dissertation in Paris, spoke about his experience as a legal translator. Séjean was a Visiting Scholar at LSU for five months, working on two CCLS projects: translation into French of chapters of the Louisiana Civil Code and translation into French of the Principles of European Tort Law.
