Press Release -

March 20, 2017

THIBODAUX – Lafourche Parish District Attorney Camille A. Morvant, II has been appointed to the membership of the Louisiana State Law Institute.

"It was truly an honor to be appointed to serve on the Law Institute," said Morvant. "The Institute serves a vital role in the development of statutory law in this state. I think it’s fair to say that no important change in the law is even considered without its involvement. I very much look forward to the work to be done, and appreciate the trust placed in me by our District Attorney’s Association."

The Louisiana State Law Institute, organized under authority of the LSU Board of Supervisors, was chartered, created and organized as an official advisory law revision commission, law reform agency and legal research agency of the State of Louisiana.

Founded on the LSU campus in 1933, the Institute draws its membership from the state and federal judiciary, including the Louisiana Supreme Court, the offices of the Governor and Attorney General, the legislature, law school administrators and various bar associations and the public defender’s association. Morvant is the District Attorney appointed to represent the Louisiana District Attorney’s Association.

The general purposes of the Louisiana State Law Institute are to promote and encourage the clarification and simplification of the law of Louisiana and its better adaptation to present social needs, to secure the better administration of justice, and to carry on scholarly legal research and scientific legal work.
