Panel Looks at Gender, Racial Inequity in La.'s Judiciary

January 25, 2018


Despite growth in the number of judges on Louisiana’s benches, minority representation has barely increased, a new Tulane University study has found.

That study is part of a panel discussion hosted by Tulane Law School Jan. 25 at 6 p.m. in Room 110 that will look at gender and racial diversity in the Louisiana judiciary and a panel discussion to include:

                • The Honorable Bernette Johnson, Chief Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court
                • The Honorable Carl Stewart, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
                • Caroline Frederickson, President of the American Constitution Society
                • Professor Sally Kenney, Director of Tulane’s Newcomb College Institute and an Affiliated Professor of Law

The event will include the release of findings of the Tulane report and the opportunity for discussion and questions with leaders of the Louisiana bench and bar.  President Mike Fitts will introduce the event and a reception will follow.
