Since 2004, Verbatim Reporters of Louisiana (VRLA) has
represented the profession of court reporting in the state of Louisiana.
As an association, it is open to all Louisiana Certified Court Reporters,
regardless of their method of reporting, to include CART and
captioners, students and teachers of reporting, as well as other
VRLA employs a lobbyist to oversee any legislation affecting the court
reporting profession. The cost of the lobbyist is considered a taxable
cost, and, in order to raise the funds needed to pay the lobbyist, VRLA
hosts continuing education seminars at least once per year to raise
the funds needed to pay the lobbyist, and to enable court reporters to
obtain the continuing education credits mandated by state-licensing
VRLA presents annual continuing education seminars to enable reporters to obtain the state-mandated credits, national credits where needed, and promote
general education, networking and professional relationships in the court reporting community.
VRLA was awarded status as a non-profit Louisiana corporation in April of 2004.
