In partnership with Louisiana Appleseed, the Fellows Class Project Series is a way for new Fellows to become involved and be a part of the LBF mission.

2010 Fellows Class Project
The Fellows Class of 2010 focused on preserving homeownership through community outreach.

Attendees were given a copy of Appleseed's Protect Your Property: Heir Property in Louisiana, a homeowners guide to building wealth and protecting assets.
"Becoming a LBF Fellow and a member of the Class Project Series was a great opportunity for me to volunteer in a unique and rewarding way." Hon. Marie A. Bookman (ret.)
"I thoroughly enjoyed helping educate our community about the importance of clear title and the resources available to them in our legal community." Patricia A. Garcia
