NEW ORLEANS – LSU Law announced that Professor Keith B. Hall has been appointed director of the LSU John P. Laborde Energy Law Center. He had been serving as interim director of the center for approximately a year.
“Professor Hall will be a fantastic director of the center. He is an asset to the law center and has already moved the Laborde Energy Law Center’s initiatives forward as the interim director; I know he has additional plans for increasing student engagement as well as other program enhancements,” said LSU Law Interim Dean Lee Ann Wheelis Lockridge. “This is an exciting time for the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center as well as for its Laborde Energy Law Center.”
Hall has been an LSU Law faculty member since 2012. As Campanile Charities Professor of Energy Law, he teaches courses in mineral rights, energy law and regulation, international petroleum transactions, and civil law property at the LSU Law Center. Hall has also served as Director of the Louisiana Mineral Law Institute at LSU Law since 2012.
“I am honored to be appointed Director of LSU’s John P. Laborde Energy Law Center. Since the center was founded seven years ago, it has done an excellent job of training law students for careers in the energy sector—whether in law firms, companies, or government,” said Hall. “Many of the center’s graduates are now seen as emerging young leaders in this field. Further, the center’s other programs, such as public lectures on important topics and continuing legal education for lawyers, have received favorable attention nationally, and even internationally.”
