Clare Sanchez to Fill Board of Supervisors Position

By: Liz Wong

Third year LSU law student and current SBA Executive President, Clare Sanchez, has been elected to the prestigious Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors is the governing body for the entire LSU system.  It represents approximately 250,000 students.  The Board oversees expansions, renovations, new degree requirements, and approves new majors, among other things. It is a fifteen-member board, with fourteen being appointed by the Governor.  Each member represents the districts of Louisiana.

Sanchez is the student member, which is the only position not appointed by Governor Jindal. Instead, Clare was elected by the other seven Presidents from each of the eight LSU schools.  Those schools include but are not limited to: LSU-Eunice, LSU-Alexandria, LSU-Shreveport, and the Health and Science Center.  Essentially, Sanchez is the voice of the students for all LSU schools.

In an effort to better prepare its future lawyers for immigration issues across the country, Paul M. Hebert Law Center offers courses in Immigration Law, as well as offering clinical components to give students hands-on experience with cases concerning immigration reform.
