Press Room

The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights (LCCR) is a nonprofit law center that promotes fairness, dignity, and opportunity for Louisiana’s most vulnerable children.

Transforming Juvenile Justice. Through policy advocacy, public education, and impact litigation, we are working towards a transformed juvenile justice system.  We believe in a system that is safe, smart, cost-effective, and fair.

Defending Children. When children fall into the justice system, LCCR defends their rights and fight for their legal and life success. We provide holistic legal representation; leadership in juvenile defense reform; and training and practice resources for public defenders.


LCCR’s expert staff is available to offer perspective and expertise on a variety of topics related to juvenile justice, youth development, criminal justice, and public defense.
