The Louisiana Bar Foundation

Advancing Equal Justice and law-related education through Fellowship


Raising the Bar Endowment Campaign

Even in today's tough economic environment, Louisiana lawyers, judges and others dedicated to improving our justice system have stepped up and made a pledge to the Raising the Bar campaign. With more than $500,000 raised thus far, Fellows and volunteers have been working hard to protect the work that the Louisiana Bar Foundation does, insuring equal access to the justice system. The endowment fund will provide funding for justice-related nonprofit organizations in Louisiana and will help to address the unrealized legal needs of Louisianas indigent citizens.
