LPDB Name Change

Please be advised that Act 22 of the 2024 Second Extraordinary Session abolished the Louisiana Public Defender Board(LPDB) and renamed the agency the Office of the State Public Defender.This change effectively transferred most of the Board's regulatory powers to that Office. It also created a new Board, The Louisiana Public Defender Oversight Board that is advisory in nature with specific areas of authority.

The agency remains in the Executive Branch/Office of the Governor; the agency number remains the same- 0116; the agency staffing, location and address remain the same.

The name has changed to the Office of the State Public Defender and is responsible for meeting all reporting and compliance mandates.

Please advise what, if anything, you need from this office to transfer the title of the agency from the Louisiana Public Defender Board to the Office of the State Public Defender.
