LCRA would like to welcome you to the new Louisiana Court Reporters Association website.
Louisiana court reporters are recognized leaders in their profession because of their determined adherence to the standard set by LCRA(Louisiana Court Reporters Association).
LCRA is an organization that educates, protects, and promotes the court reporting profession in Louisiana. In addition, LCRA especially encourages its members to portray the ideals set by the NCRA (National Court Reporters Association), the official standard bearer in the nation.
Formerly named Louisiana Shorthand Reporters Association, LCRA is the oldest professional court reporting organization in the State of Louisiana. Association records indicate that 1955 is the founding date of the organization.
Despite some early years’ lapses of continuity of the organization, LCRA is still looked on as the States’ backbone of the profession, and is the only court reporting association that is the State affiliate of the National Court Reporting Association.
LCRA EMPLOYS A FULL-TIME LOBBYIST TO PROTECT AND PROMOTE THE INTERESTS OF COURT REPORTERS THROUGHOUT THE STATE.
Today LCRA has a membership that is the largest in the Louisiana court reporting profession, and it is still growing, still promoting the profession, still protecting the “integrity of the record,” and providing “preservers of the truth.”
LCRA would like to share a statement that was made on the floor of the US House of Representatives by Congressman Frank Guinta recognizing Court Reporting and Captioning Week. CLICK HERE for YouTube Video.
