The George W. and Jean H. Pugh Institute for Justice provides support for research and educational activities that promote justice for individuals in the administration of the criminal and civil justice systems in Louisiana and elsewhere. The Institute achieves its mission in partnership with the Louisiana Law Review, sponsoring symposia that foster publication and electronic distribution of related research. The Pugh Institute was founded in 1998.

Each year, the Pugh Institute sponsors lectures for the LSU Law community and the general public. Past speakers include Sister Helen Prejean, Ruby Bridges, Honorable Jay C. Zainey, and Barry Scheck.
