Louisiana College, a private university owned by the Louisiana Baptist Convention, will open a law school in Shreveport, La.
Louisiana College Judge Paul Pressler School of Law will be housed at the former CNB/United Mercantile building at N. Market Street, with plans to open in August 2012.
The college announced it was opening a law school in 2007. The owners donated the building to the school. Constructed in 1904, the building is within walking distance of several courthouses and law offices.
