Southern University Law Center (SULC) administrators are looking into the possibility of opening a campus in the Shreveport area. A feasibility study is underway to help in making the decision.
“The Shreveport metropolitan area is a large area and there is no law school in the region,” said SULC Interim Chancellor John Pierre. “There are no law schools in North or Central Louisiana, East Texas, Southern Arkansas, or Western Mississippi. We’re trying to determine if there is sufficient interest in the region to establish a branch/satellite campus.”
The survey will help administrators customize a program that fits the region’s demographics. The goal is to offer an affordable, flexible part-time program that would allow students to take evening and weekend classes. The four-year program is designed for working professionals, as well as traditional and non-traditional students. The proposed SULC branch could open as soon as fall 2018.
“We need at least three years of planning. We’re trying to determine if establishing a branch/satellite law school campus is financially feasible,” Pierre said.
Anyone interested in attending law school in the proposed location is encouraged to fill out the survey. To fill out the survey, click here.
