2016 Annual LADB Training Session

Over 100 volunteer attorneys and members of the public participated in the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board’s 2016 hearing committee training meeting in New Orleans.

Over the course of two days, volunteers received instruction that will prove useful as they embark on a new year of disciplinary board service.  LADB counsel Jordan Huck was one of 14 faculty who led sessions on topics ranging from the procedural rules of the lawyer discipline system to the rules of professional conduct to duties and expectations of committee members.  “In addition to the lectures, attendees met in small groups to work through hypothetical situations that commonly arise with hearing committees,” Huck said.  “It provides a glimpse into the type of issues they may have to deal with in real proceedings.”

LADB Board Chairman Carl Butler said that while the sessions are designed to orient those who are new to the process, it provides a helpful refresher course for experienced volunteers. “I find it very enlightening to hear these lectures again. It’s a good rejuvenation and recharging of everyone's mission.”
