Diversity Committee


The mission of this committee is to assess the level of racial, ethnic, national origin, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation and disability diversity within all components of the legal profession in Louisiana; to identify barriers to the attainment of full and meaningful representation and participation in the legal profession by persons of diverse backgrounds; and to propose programs and methods by which the LSBA can most effectively work to remove those barriers and achieve greater diversity.

In addition to the chairperson and members appointed by the President, the following persons shall serve as ex-officio members of the Committee: the deans of all four Louisiana law schools or their designees; the Attorney General of the State of Louisiana or his/her designee; a designee of the Louisiana Supreme Court, which individual shall either be a member of the Court or a lawyer member of the Court's staff; and one member each from the federal and state judiciary. To ensure the knowledge and understanding required for the success of this committee while also providing for sufficient turnover of committee members, a minimum of one-third and a maximum of two-thirds of the committee shall be reappointed each year.  (Added June 27, 2005; amended January 23, 2010; amended January 17, 2015)
