 MARCH 10, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson announced today that in recognition of March being designated National Women’s History Month, the Louisiana Supreme Court invites citizens to visit the Supreme Court Museum exhibit honoring women in law.


This year National Women’s History Month theme is Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment. Throughout the month of March the Women in Law exhibit will be open to the public Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. The Supreme Court Museum is located on the First Floor of the 400 Royal Street Courthouse in New Orleans.


According to Chief Justice Johnson, “National Women’s History Month 2014 provides an excellent opportunity to honor women and their accomplishments. The Supreme Court exhibit features a time line of the history of women in law and underscores the often unrecognized determination and tenacity of those who were pioneers in the field. Their lives and their work will inspire girls and women to achieve their full potential and will encourage boys and men to respect the importance of women’s experience. It is my hope that citizens of all walks of life and ages will visit the Women in Law exhibit this month.”


The exhibit made its debut during the Annual National Association of Women Judges Conference in October 2013 when over 300 national and international women judges convened in New Orleans. In addition to the historical time line, the exhibit also includes displays which honor and celebrate all of the Louisiana women judges currently serving the state and federal judiciary.


For more information about the Women in Law exhibit or for information regarding Supreme Court tours contact the Community Relations Department at 504.310.2588.
