Louisiana Mediation Act: Revised
Neither the State of
Louisiana nor its courts licenses or certifies
mediators, though the Louisiana Mediation Act does provide for the
creation and maintenance of a Mediator Registry, which has certain
minimum requirements for mediators wishing to be listed, and from
which any 'Court-Appointed' Mediators must be listed. (link)
