The 25th Annual LSBA Symposium was held September 14th, 2018 in New Orleans. Richard Arsenault, program chair since its inception, led the discussions. The presentations analyzed critical maritime developments, and the speakers were the folks presiding over, writing about, and litigating the most significant maritime cases.
Neblett, Beard and Arsenault committed to covering the registration fees for select students from Louisiana’s four law schools: Paul M Hebert Law Center Louisiana State University, University Law Center, Loyola University College of Law, and Tulane University Law School. The firm was excited to help these young students further their pursuit of education.
Richard Arsenault: “I have chaired this symposium for 25 years and until recently, the audience and participants have been lawyers, judges and academicians. I decided it was time to get law students involved. However, the only way that would happen is if someone would underwrite their registration fees. Consequently, Neblett Beard and Arsenault decided to do so and reached out to the four law schools in Louisiana to provide students with this unique opportunity. It was rewarding to see the students engage with the faculty and get this exceptional exposure to outstanding members of the bench and bar.”
Said one CLE Coordinator, “Additionally, thank you for your kind generosity in sponsoring the law students. No seminar chair has ever done that and it is greatly appreciated!! It demonstrates your genuine interest in fostering and mentoring tomorrow’s lawyers.”
