The Louisiana Association of Defense Counsel

We are an organization of over 1,400 Louisiana lawyers who are primarily engaged in the defense of civil litigation. Founded in 1963, the LADC endeavors to create quality CLE tailored to individual practices while educating and training our members. We have enjoyed spectacular growth and today provide our members with monthly updates on case law through our newsletter. 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.

New Practice Group Formed: Insurance Law

Our Practice Groups keep growing! Starting half a decade ago with only 3, we are now proud to announce the formulation of our fifth Insurance Law Practice Group. Due to the large amount of cases filed in the last year as the result of the 2020 Hurricane Season, we would like to provide a forum for our members involved in those types of cases to share their experiences, ask questions and exchange information helpful to their practice. We hope to arrange for informal conference calls as well as an email list to connect members who want access to this resource. If interested, please sign up now!
