The New Orleans Chapter serves the Eastern District of Louisiana, which includes 13 parishes across southeast Louisiana. In promoting federal practice and the needs of the federal judiciary and practitioners, the New Orleans Chapter is the premier bar association serving the Eastern District. The Chapter holds many marquee events, including a Federal Judges Reception; Malcolm Monroe Federal Practice Seminar, which includes admission to all federal courts in Louisiana; Judge Alvin Rubin Symposium, focusing on ethics and professionalism; and a host of educational programs that bring members up to date analysis of federal practice and procedure. Our members range from law students to senior attorneys in many different areas of practice.
