Shreveport Bar Association’s Krewe of Justinian

by Nancy Cooper

Greetings fellow SBA Members, Friends, and Family!

On behalf of the Justinian XXIX Senate, our glorious Carnival Court, and all current and former Royalty, I want to cordially invite you to join our marvelous Krewe of Justinian! As a committee of the Shreveport Bar Association, the Krewe of Justinian has two primary missions—one professional/social and one philanthropic.

Our professional mission seeks to bring our local community of lawyers together in a social, fun-loving atmosphere that will encourage camaraderie and civility as we all work together to support and protect our clients. 

Our philanthropic mission seeks to raise funds in support of the Shreveport Bar Foundation’s Pro Bono Project (“PBP”), our Self Represented Litigants Program (“SRL”), and our Legal Representation for Victims of Domestic Violence Program (“LRVDV”). These programs provide legal assistance to low-income clients and to victims of domestic violence in Caddo and Bossier Parishes. To learn more about the SBF, please go to

The money raised by the Krewe through memberships, sponsorships, our 5K Race for the Beads, auctions, and donations serves both of our missions well. A membership in our Krewe opens the door to FOUR FABULOUS EVENTS for you and your spouse/guest: our Coronation Bal, our Midway to Mardi Gras Party, our Grand Bal, and our Royalty Brunch. This is an incredibly cost-effective way for you to get to know your fellow lawyers and their families in a relaxed, jovial environment with over-the-top food, music, and revelry in keeping with our unique Louisiana culture.

In addition, please consider additional support of our missions through participation in the Race for the Beads (scheduled for Sunday October 30, see Sports Spectrum’s website for more details), Race and Bal sponsorships, and purchasing some incredible auction items at our Grand Bal in January, when we will be rolling out our new and improved digital bidding format.

Thank you in advance for your generous support of our Krewe, our Shreveport Bar Foundation, and our Northwest Louisiana community. The 2023 Mardi Gras Season is launching now, so please purchase your Krewe membership and come ROCK THE 80’s WITH US! 

(😉 Don’t forget that an extra $150 donation, held strictly in reserve for our SBF, will buy you a stunning Krewe of Justinian flag you can proudly display throughout the season. 💜💚💛)

Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!
