AIDSLaw of Louisiana
AIDSLaw of Louisiana, Inc. is a Louisiana not-for-profit corporation formed in 1989 by a small group of New Orleans attorneys and legal professionals who recognized that their individual efforts were not sufficient to meet the legal needs of the rapidly growing number of indigent clients with HIV infection and AIDS. AIDSLaw is the only organization in the state exclusively dedicated to addressing the legal needs of that population. AIDSLaw of Louisiana, Inc. is a not-for-profit public interest organization providing legal services and referrals without charge to persons affected by HIV disease.
