Allyson Marie Billeaud was born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana. In 2013, she graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with the highest honors before going on to attend the University of Minnesota Law School where she graduated with a Juris Doctor and Concentrations in Criminal Justice and Human Rights Law.

In law school, she was Editor-in-Chief of Minnesota Journal of International Law and organized a symposium to celebrate the Journal’s 25th anniversary, with guest speakers invited to speak from around the world to discuss the rule of law. She was also in the Human Rights Clinic, where her team partnered up with other global players to present reasons to the United Nations as to why certain human rights violations in Sri Lanka needed urgent international attention. She and her team also worked with the International Criminal Court to include sex crimes as a crime against humanity, making it an international crime that could be prosecuted at that tribunal. In 2016, she was also published in the Journal of Race, Gender and Poverty for her article, “Why America Retains the Death Penalty: Americans’ Detachment from Their Criminal Justice System.”

Before returning to Louisiana, she was granted a fellowship by the United Nations to work in Tanzania for the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. While there, she assisted the Prosecutor in closing the remaining cases being prosecuted for the Rwanda genocide in 1994. The main purpose was to ensure that any other major perpetrators of the genocide by transferred to the local court systems to be tried and to complete sentencing on those who had been tried by the international court.

Ms. Billeaud then returned to her home state of Louisiana and was admitted to the Louisiana State Bar in May 2017.
