The McLeod Lecture Series, founded in honor of Bill McLeod, former legislator, judge and community leader, returns in 2020.

This long-running series is dedicated to presenting timely as well as historical aspects of Louisiana politics and efforts to promote a climate of good government.

This year’s participants, distinguished Louisiana academics, journalists and political figures, pool their collective decades of experience, expertise, and finely honed observations to assess our current communicative dysfunction, discussing potential solutions to our inability to discuss our differences and building strategies to regain temperate discourse and unifying policies.
