FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The Supreme Court of Louisiana Historical Society announced the opening of the Louisiana Supreme Court Museum during a ceremony at the courthouse today. The Louisiana Supreme Court Museum is a project of the Supreme Court of Louisiana Historical Society. It is the Society’s purpose to promote an interest in and understanding of the people and institutions which have contributed to the development of Louisiana law over the course of nearly 300 years.


“The Louisiana Supreme Court thanks the members of the Supreme Court of Louisiana Historical Society for their important contribution to preserving the history of the Louisiana Supreme Court and for increasing the public’s knowledge and awareness by opening the Louisiana Supreme Court Museum,” Chief Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr. said expressing the Court’s appreciation to the Historical Society.


According to David Bienvenu, President of the Historical Society Board of Directors, the Museum will display items of interest in the area of the history of the Louisiana Supreme Court and Louisiana law. The opening exhibit is entitled The Chief Justices of Louisiana: Life Sketches. The Museum, located on the first floor of the Louisiana Supreme Court at 400 Royal Street in New Orleans, is open to the public Monday through Friday.


In addition to the Museum, the Historical Society was active in the restoration and reopening of the Louisiana Supreme Court at 400 Royal Street. The restoration of dozens of portraits of Louisiana judges and lawyers from the past has been also made possible in recent years through the contributions of members of the Historical Society.


Membership in the Historical Society is open to the public. Membership forms will be available at the Museum Opening, or can be obtained by calling 504.310.2149, or by e-mail to cbillings@lasc.org.
