The Louisiana State Bar Association (LSBA) recognizes that achieving diversity in the legal profession is an evolutionary process that requires the Association's continued effort and commitment.
Through the Diversity Committee, a subcommittee plans an annual Diversity Conclave and statewide diversity/inclusion workshops and roundtable discussions for local/specialty bars and organizations. Deutsch Kerrigan Partner Barbara Ormsby serves as the Co-Chair of the Diversity Conclave.
The LSBA is committed to diversity in its membership, Board of Governors, staff, House of Delegates, committees and all leadership positions. Diversity is an inclusive concept that encompasses race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation and disability.
