Criminal Law Section

Criminal Law Section


This section places an emphasis on education. In addition to providing recent case reports through the Louisiana Bar Journal, the section participates in joint seminars designed to bring prosecutors and defense attorneys together to share their views and interpretations on a wide range of legal topics. The section also funds a number of scholarships to seminars both to encourage active participation by section members who might otherwise not attend and to assist members in meeting CLE requirements.
