My name is Michael J. Lambert, and I am an attorney focusing in media and First Amendment law. I graduated from the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center in 2015 with a J.D. (Juris Doctor) and D.C.L. (Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law).
I am also a journalist. I graduated from the Louisiana State University Manship School of Mass Communication in 2012 with a B.A. in mass communication with a concentration in journalism.
