 The Judicial Council of Louisiana

The Judicial Council of the Supreme Court of Louisiana was established in 1950 and received its first funding by the state legislature in 1954. Through its various standing committees and the creation of ad hoc committees, the Judicial Council serves as a research arm for the Supreme Court. It often acts as a resource center where ideas for simplifying and expediting judicial procedures and/or correcting shortcomings in the system are studied. Additionally, the Judicial Council publishes an Annual Report which chronicles the activities of the Council, the Judicial College, The Judiciary Commission, the Law Library, and the Judicial Administrator's Office. It also contains a compilation of statistics from the various courts in the state. 

The Judicial Council is composed of 17 members representing the judiciary, the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Louisiana State Law Institute, the Legislature, the Louisiana District Attorneys Association, the Louisiana Clerks of Court Association, and the citizens of Louisiana. The Chief Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court serves as Chair of the Council and one other Justice serves as a member. The Council and its various committees are staffed by the office of the Judicial Administrator.
