The Louisiana Judicial
College (LJC website) provides quality continuing legal education for Louisiana's
judges. Continuing legal education courses focus on new law, ethics and cutting-edge issues. As lawyers, judges are required to attend a minimum of 12.5 hours of continued legal education every year — one hour of which must be on legal ethics, and one hour on professional responsibility. According to Louisiana Supreme Court Rule XXX, Part H, Rule 3(f), effective January 1, 2013, of those 12.5 hours, judges must obtain five (5) from a Louisiana Judicial College Seminar.
Seminars sponsored by the Judicial College include Spring Judges Conference, Fall Judges Conference and the Summer School for Judges. These are augmented through the year with the Annual Torts Seminar, the City and Juvenile Judges Seminar, the Family Law Seminar, Evidence & Procedure Seminar, North Louisiana Seminar, and the Rural Courts Seminar.
