Pursuant to House Concurrent Resolution Number 24, the Louisiana Board of Regents has contracted National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) to undertake a Feasibility Study of creating a satellite for Southern University’s Law Center in the Shreveport/Bossier region. As part of this effort, NCHEMS has established this open-comment webpage to gather comments and reactions to this proposal from the public at large. They are particularly interested in comments concerning:
The kind(s) of legal education most needed in the region (for example, education to produce new lawyers, education to produce paralegals, or education for HR professionals, real estate brokers/agents and others who need more general legal education in some particular aspect of the law, or any combination of these)
The characteristics of the students who most need access to legal education in the region (for example, demographics such as gender and race/ethnicity, age, employment status, and/or full-time/part-time attendance)
Please be assured that all comments are confidential and will only be seen by members of the NCHEMS staff. When NCHEMS summarizes comments for purposes of the study, moreover, comments will not be published verbatim and commenters will not be identified.
Consultants will be in town next week to conduct a series of meetings with key stakeholders. Meetings will be taking place in the offices of Louisiana Tech at Bossier Parish Community College (6220 E Texas St. Building H, Bossier City, LA 71111) on December 11th & 12th, 2019. These stakeholder meetings are by invitation only
