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.
