Law Library of Louisiana Director Georgia Chadwick has been awarded the Bethany J. Ochal Award for Distinguished Service by the State, Court and County Special Interest Section of the American Association of Law Libraries.


According to Maryruth Storer, Chair of the State, Court, County Law Libraries, “The Ochal award is presented to a member who has made a significant contribution to law librarianship and who is nearing the end of their library career. Criteria for receiving this award include service to the profession of law librarianship, contributions to legal research, teaching and outreach efforts and recognition by members of the legal community.”


Chadwick received her undergraduate degree from Newcomb College in 1976 and Master of Arts degree in Librarianship from the University of Denver in 1978. Her first professional position in 1978 was as reference librarian at the Law Library of Louisiana which is housed in the Louisiana Supreme Court courthouse. She has worked at two law school libraries, University of Texas in Austin and Southern Methodist University, and over the past 20 years she has worked at the Law Library of Louisiana. Chadwick has been the Director of the Law Library of Louisiana for the past seven years.


On behalf of the Supreme Court, Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson noted, “Georgia works tirelessly to promote the Law Library to all patrons, from self-represented litigants to judges. The justices of the Louisiana Supreme Court are most grateful for all of her work which benefits courts and law libraries everywhere.”
