 Purpose of the Family Law Section:  

    • To coordinate and implement new membership in the Baton Rouge Bar Association ("BRBA") and to assimilate family lawyers into the BRBA on a monthly basis so as to elicit membership as well as participation in the committee system of the BRBA; 
    • To promote professional and social understanding and cooperation and network among family lawyers in BRBA 
    • To motivate present membership to become active in the Section’s membership in general and the committee process specifically;  
    • To take such other action and perform such other functions as the Executive Committee deems appropriate.
