The Louisiana Association of Defense Counsel

We are an organization of 1,400 Louisiana lawyers who are primarily engaged in the defense of civil litigation. The organization was founded in 1963 to share ideas and to educate and train our members. We have enjoyed spectacular growth and today provide our members with valuable educational opportunities, such as a monthly newsletter reporting on recent developments in the law. We present educational programs and training throughout the year to provide our members with the knowledge and skills to be among the top litigators in the region. We are proud to be one of the largest defense-lawyer organizations in the United States, and to have been recently selected as the outstanding defense organization in the country by the Defense Research Institute.
