2019 Press Releases



Trina S. Vincent


 MAY 9, 2019


Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson announced that the Louisiana Supreme Court recently approved substantive revisions to Supreme Court Rule XIX and its appendices, pertaining to Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement, to be effective on May 15, 2019.

The Court adopted the rule revisions following a lengthy study and an audit by the American Bar Association. The Court solicited, received, and reviewed comments from the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Rules of Professional Conduct Committee, the Court’s Attorney Disciplinary Board and practitioners before making its final determination.

The amendments to Rule XIX and its appendices seek to streamline the disciplinary process; clarify certain processes regarding existing practices; implement a new permanent retirement status; implement a procedure for inventorying lawyer files; and also include changes for stylistic and consistency purposes. The revised Rule XIX and its appendices, effective May 15, 2019, can be found on the Court’s website, www.lasc.org.
