Second Tier Swamp: Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center
Tuition: Louisiana residents attending this public dung heap, on a full-time basis, will pay $17,473.75 in tuition and fees – for the 2011-2012 school year. Out-of-state, full-time LSU law students will be charged $33,799.75, in tuition plus fees – for 2011-2012. These rates apply to first and second year law students. Those enrolled in their third or fourth year will receive a lower tuition bill. By the way, isn’t it nice that the commode gives all of its students a discount of $0.25 for the Spring Semester?!?!
Ranking: As the “flagship” law school in the state, surely this school has a stellar reputation in the legal and academic communities, right?!?! Well, US “News” & World Report rates the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Cesspool as the 84th greatest, most prolific, and amazing law school in the United States. In fact, the school shares this ranking with ten other trash pits.
Supposed Employment Statistics: The dung heap claims that 92 percent of its Class of 2010 was employed, within nine months of graduation. To wit:
“LSU Law graduates typically succeed in securing employment within nine months of graduation and bar passage. Some 92% of graduates from 2010 were employed within nine months. Starting salaries ranged from $59,568 to $160,000 for the students reporting for the Class of 2010.”
The overall average starting salary was listed as $59,568. Keep in mind that this information pertains to those who bothered to provide their income data. Those earning small salaries are much less likely to report their earnings, to their law school. The stated minimum salary was $23,920. For $ome rea$on, the dung heap does not consider the incomes of unemployed grads, in this category.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the LSU Law Class of 2010 who incurred debt for law school - as $69,462. A mere 79 percent of this trash heap’s particular class took on such foul debt. This figure does not take undergraduate debt into account.
Faculty and Administrator Pay: Since this is a public school, we cannot rely on Guidestar, for this information. Instead, we head to the worthless LSU Reveille:
“These figures reflect the non-classified 2010-2011 annual salaries of University employees as of July 1, 2010. Note that employee salary is not necessarily the same as employee pay; the latter can be affected by other factors like bonuses.”
The statement above is correct, regarding the fact that these figures do not represent employee pay. For instance, Les Miles, head football coach at LSU, is listed as earning a $300K salary, for 2010-2011. For $ome rea$on, the Lousiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College does not furnish the salaries of its “law professors.” Since these pigs claim to be performing a “public service,” they should not be ashamed to provide their incomes. Oh wait. That public service line is simply another lie.
Let’s take a look at one bastard employed by this commode:
"I think [ABA head cockroach William T. Robinson III] is absolutely right," said Paul R. Baier, a law professor at Louisiana State University. "The dire economy is obvious. In law we have a doctrine: You are assumed to know the law. I'd add to that and say you must know the economy." [Emphasis mine]
Check out the gray pig’s LSU faculty page:
“LEGAL DRAMA - LSU law professor Paul R. Baier, in the role of Professor Richard Henry Jesse, left, and Luling's Justice Harry T. Lemmon as Chief Justice E. D. White, right, starred in Father Chief Justice, a five-act play written and directed by Baier. The play was designed to preserve the memory and life of Louisiana's own Edward Douglass White, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, 1910-1921. Father Chief Justice was performed in the Colonnade Theater at the LSU Union on March 25 and also featured Judge Mary Ann Lemmon, Chief Judge William V. Redmann, Garland Rolling, Harry Rosenberg and David Madden."
If you take a look at Baier’s 20 page resume, you will notice that the academic reveres judges, especially members of The Supremes. Isn’t it sad that such an educated man puts these rats in black robes on a pedestal?!
This drivel is entitled “What Else You Can Do With a Law Degree.” Here are a few of the fields mentioned: artists; actors; directors; scientists and inventors; media personalities. The pigs forget to mention that you can also wipe your ass, with a law diploma from LSU.
Conclusion: The Loui$iana $TTaTTe Univer$iTTy Paul M. HeberTT Law CenTTer is a sweltering, second tier scat pile. You DO NOT NEED to incur an additional $75K-$100K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a chance to practice law in the backwaters of Louisiana. The “professors” will continue to make a fat salary; you do not need to personally go into financial hell, in order to pay their mortgages.
