The Second Circuit Court of Appeal in Shreveport, one of five circuit courts of appeal in Louisiana, consists of nine judges who are elected from three election districts in the 20 northernmost parishes of Louisiana. The Second Circuit Courthouse, constructed in 1987, was dedicated in the memory of Justice Pike Hall, Jr. on September 29, 2000.
