LSU Law Dean Thomas Galligan Jr. welcomed the LSU Law Class of 2022 at the first day of a two-day orientation program on the LSU Law campus on Aug. 15.
Some 205 students make up the first year class. Louisiana residents comprise 70% of the class, while 30% are nonresidents. The class is 53% female and 47% male; 21% are students of color. Students hail from 67 undergraduate institutions, 24 states and one foreign country. They have a median LSAT score of 155 and a median GPA of 3.48, each of which is a slight increase from last fall's entering class.
