LPDB Guidelines For Capital Defense

Act 307 of the 2007 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature (see now La. R.S. 15:148) directed the Louisiana Public Defender Board to create "mandatory statewide public defender standards and guidelines that require public defender services to be provided in a manner that is uniformly fair and consistent throughout the state."

In compliance with that legislative directive, at its October 28, 2009 Board Meeting, the Louisiana Public Defender Board voted to adopt a proposed rule that will create mandatory guidelines affecting public defender services in capital cases. The LPDB Guidelines for Capital Defense were promulgated in accordance with Louisiana's Administrative Procedures Act, and became effective on May 20, 2010.

The Standards may also be found in the Louisiana Register at Vol. 36, No. 1005.
