BATON ROUGE – Attorney, author and student advocate C.L. Lindsay will be performing live at LSU on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at 8:30 p.m. in the Student Union Theater. Through C.L. Lindsay’s hilarious show, students learn about how the law can affect their lives, what their rights are online and how to throw a party, the right way. The program, titled “Facebook, Alcohol and the Law,” is free to LSU students with a valid LSU student ID.


In 1998, Lindsay left his practice in New York City to found the Coalition for Student & Academic Rights, or CO-STAR. Since then, acting as its executive director, he has built CO-STAR into a national student rights organization that helps thousands of college students with their legal problems, free of charge, each year.


In 2005, Lindsay went on to write his book, “The College Student’s Guide to the Law: Get a Grade Changed, Keep Your Stuff Private, Throw a Police-Free Party, and More!” He has appeared on national television and radio and has been featured in publications including The Washington Post and The Chicago Tribune.


Lindsay offers multimedia programs that are interactive, innovating and incredibly entertaining. He teaches students what they need to know about the law in an entertaining and honest way. According to the Contra Costa Times, Lindsay “offers straight and honest facts about many legal issues without all the complicated legal jargon.” His show takes the mystery out of legalese and explains student rights in a clear, cogent, and outright funny way.
