In today's episode, we welcome Madeleine Landrieu, Dean and Judge Adrian G. Duplantier, Distinguished Professor of Law at Loyola University New Orleans, College of Law, a position she has held since 2017. Dean Landrieu shares some differences in teaching Common Law and Civil Law in New Orleans, and notes that although Civil Law is limited to Louisiana in the United States, it is practiced worldwide. Dean Landrieu shares with us her experience in private practice and serving 16 years on the bench, and how those experiences and her family's legacy led her to the deanship at her alma mater. She compares the roles of appellate court judge and being a dean of a law school, and how she continues to help educate jurists. Dean Landrieu explains the impetus for, and impact of, the Nancy Marsiglia Institute of Justice, which strives to expand knowledge about the law by teaching the constitution to lay people to reclaim civil discourse. She hopes that the Institute will become a model for law schools nationally. She also tells us about Loyola's experience working with law enforcement to provide training in tools that aid public safety, and her role as Chair of the ABA's Legal Education Police Practices Consortium, a consortium of 60 law schools, including St. Mary's University School of Law. Lastly, she shares with us her thoughts regarding the evolution of legal education in the coming decade, and her hopes that legal education stays predominantly in-person, particularly when it comes to community and relationship building, with the use of hybrid models to enhance and enrich those in-person experiences.
