About us

The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights is a nonprofit law center that defends the right of every child in Louisiana’s juvenile justice system to fairness, dignity, and opportunity.

Our Children’s Defense Team – the juvenile public defender in New Orleans and one of the foremost juvenile defenders in the country – uses an innovative model of holistic, team-based, cross-disciplinary advocacy to win both legal and life success for vulnerable youth in nearly 1,000 cases each year. 

Statewide, we provide resources and training for public defenders who work with children, and we advocate for law and policy reform to build a juvenile justice system that is fair, compassionate, and supportive of positive youth development.
