The Division of Administrative Law (DAL) is Louisiana's centralized state administrative hearings panel. When disputes arise between state agencies and the citizens they regulate, the DAL provides fair, prompt, and orderly adjudications conducted by independent, impartial, and professional Administrative Law Judges (ALJs).

All case docketing is done through the Clerk of Courtís office. A modern computer network and case docketing and tracking system contains up to date information on the status of all cases.

Our main office address is 1020 Florida Street Baton Rouge and features several hearing rooms, a mediation room, and the Clerk of Courtís office. The DAL has field offices and conducts hearings statewide at Other Locations.
