The Appellate Section of the Louisiana State Bar Association has filed a petition with the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization seeking certification of a specialty in appellate practice. Here are PDF copies of the petition and the proposed standards for board certification.
The Board has scheduled a public hearing to give bar members an opportunity to comment on the proposed specialty. The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 4:30 p.m., at the Bar Center, 601 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans.
p.s. If you cannot attend the December 3 hearing in New Orleans, you may forward any written comments to the Board to consider pertaining to developing a specialty in appellate practice. Any questions or comments should be sent to Barbara.firstname.lastname@example.org.
