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.

Reconnecting with Our Practice Groups - Zoom Meetings

Now more than ever, LADC members depend on each other to share information, expertise, and emotional support. We thought it was a good idea to hold a zoom call just to “chat” to catch up with our Practice Groups. Chair Elizabeth Liner will be hosting the Employment Law Meeting on January 26th. Chair Sharonda Williams will be hosting the Construction and Commercial Meeting on January 27th. Chair Ben Biller will be hosting the Medical Malpractice Meeting on February 3rd. Chair Nick Wise will be hosting the Environmental and Energy Meeting on February 11th. Please register (no fee) so we can send you the zoom invite. All meetings will begin at 11:30 A.M. on their assigned date.
