Professor Francisco Reyes gives the 39th Tucker Lecture

Tuesday, May 31, 2016, Prof. Francisco Reyes, Superintendent of Companies for the Republic of Colombia and Chairman of the United Nations Commission for International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) for the period 2015-2016, delivered the 39th Tucker Lecture. His topic was “The Proposed Organization of American States Model Law on Simplified Corporations: Perspectives and Challenges.” The lecture was built on Prof. Reyes’s comparative study of the models of simplified corporation and its successful adoption in Colombia legislation, in 2008. He discussed ongoing harmonization efforts and the obstacles that need to be surpassed before a model law is adopted. The Lecture was well attended and well received, particularly by members of the law faculty and participants in the 4th Juris Diversitas Annual Conference, taking place at the same time at the LSU Law Center.

In his opening remarks, Interim Dean Bill Corbett expressed his joy in welcoming a longtime friend of the Law Center, and Prof. Olivier Moréteau gave a vibrant homage to the speaker and his unique achievements.

LSU French Visitors at the Louisiana Supreme Court

On the occasion of the visit of Dr. Enrica Bracchi and Dr. Dominique Garreau, Associate Professors at the University of Nantes (April 5 to April 15), a visit to New Orleans was organized, including a reception at the French Consulate and a tour of the Louisiana Supreme Court. This gave a chance to French intern Lucie Talet and the CCLS team to visit or revisit the Law Library of Louisiana and marvel at some of the rare books. Miriam Childs, Acting Director, had a chance to display the recently purchased original edition of the miniature French Civil Code printed, like the well known standard version, in the year 1804.

LL.M. Class visits the 19th Judicial District Court in Baton Rouge

Marina Biragova, LL.M. Candidate 2016, reports:

The trip to the 19th JDC was a complete success: students were very excited to observe American civil procedure. We attended a jury trial  and LL.M. students were introduced to the judge during the hearing (now LL.M. Candidates 2016 will stay forever on the court record).

Then we met with Hon. Judge Holdridge, and we went trough the trial procedures from A to Z and did a mock trial. The students were amazed how different the procedure was from what they saw back home. After the mock trial,  judge Holdridge stayed with  the LL.M. Students to answer our questions.

All Judges were very excited to meet LL.M. Students.

LSU Law Student Adrian Smith studies in French at Université de Nantes

FACE_LOGO_MASTER_PROGRAMS2L Adrian P. Smith grew up in Cajun Louisiana where, despite a French language and culture revival, too many young people speak English only. With a French mother and some elementary school experience in Western France, he speaks very good French. He is the first LSU law student to study a full semester at Université de Nantes, one of our partner schools in France. For this he receives scholarship money from the Partner University Fund “Training Multilingual Jurists.”

In addition to his course work, he started this week an internship at Clyde & Co, a law firm specialized in maritime law. He has plans for another significant work experience this summer at Cheuvreux Notaires, the largest firm of notaries in Paris, where he will work with some of the finest real estate attorneys in the country.

Adrian’s story proves the relevance of the LSU legal education model in a global world: the combination of a civil law and common law based training with the practice of foreign languages can take you a long way, especially when embarking on our study abroad programs and seeking guidance for some professional experience overseas.

French Consul General Grégor Trumel Receives LSU Law French visitors

Dr. Enrica Bracchi and Dr. Dominique Garreau, Associate Professors at the University of Nantes, are visiting at LSU Law from April 5 to April 15. Dr. Garreau is the founder and head of the Nantes Master’s program in Trilingual Legal Studies, combining legal education with the study of two foreign languages and legal systems. Within the partnership agreement between LSU Law and University of Nantes, more than ten Nantes students have done an internship at the LSU Center of Civil Law Studies (CCLS), to do legal translation (Louisiana Civil Code from English to French; translation of doctrinal texts) and interpretation work on academic and professional conferences. The visit of Drs. Bracchi and Garreau coincides with the presence of Lucie Talet, who interns at the CCLS between March and July. Two Nantes students have already joined the LL.M. at LSU: FACE_LOGO_MASTER_PROGRAMSAnouk Guéroult-Bellone (class of 2015) and 2015-intern Sara Vono (class of 2016). The program is sponsored by the Partner University Fund, supporting transatlantic partnerships around research and higher education, a collaboration between the French government, American private donors and the FACE Foundation.

On April 7, 2016, Mr. Grégor Trumel, Consul General of France, met with the LSU Law French visitors at the French Consulate in New Orleans, insisting on the cultural and economic importance of vibrant academic and professional cooperation between France and Louisiana.
