Bar Admission in Louisiana

Lawyer's Oath

I solemnly swear or affirm

I will support the Constitution of the United States // and the Constitution of the State of Louisiana;
I will maintain // the respect due to courts of justice // and judicial officers;
I will not counsel or maintain // any suit or proceeding // which shall appear to me to be unjust //
nor any defense // except such // as I believe to be honestly debatable // under the law of the land;

I will employ // for the purpose of maintaining // the causes confided to me
// such means // only as are consistent with truth and honor // and will never seek
// to mislead the judge or jury // by any artifice or false statement // of fact or law;

I will maintain the confidence // and preserve inviolate // the secrets of my client // and will
accept no compensation // in connection with a client's business
// except from the client // or with the client's knowledge and approval;

To opposing parties and their counsel, // I pledge fairness, // integrity, // and civility, // not
only in court, // but also in all written // and oral communications;

I will abstain from all offensive personality // and advance no fact // prejudicial to the honor or
reputation // of a party or witness // unless required by the justice of the cause // with which I
am charged;

I will never reject // from any consideration // personal to myself // the cause of the defenseless
or oppressed // or delay any person's cause // for lucre or malice.

So help me God!
