LAED Clerk of Court Announces Electronic Collection of Triennal Attorney Dues Beginning in January, 2017

Release Date: 
Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Collection of the Eastern District of Louisiana's (LAED) triennial dues will begin on January 1, 2017, and must be paid not later than March 1, 2017. Members of the LAED bar will be required to pay their dues electronically through their Electronic Case filing (ECF) account. Attorneys will be charged a rate of $15.00 per year for a total of $45.00 since the dues are collected only once every three years.

Pursuant to Local Civil Rule 83.2.2 (D), any attorney who fails to pay the $45.00 triennial dues online will be summarily suspended after notice has been provided to the attorney's last registered address at least 35 days prior to the suspension. No further notice of triennial dues collection will be provided to attorneys who are currently suspended for failing to pay triennial dues in 2014. Any attorney suspended pursuant to Local Rule 83.2.2 (D)(2) may be reinstated upon payment of triennial dues.
