Locally, the state court is established district by district, with 42 judicial districts in Louisiana. Some of these have more than one Parish, and the 15th Judicial District is one of those, with the three parishes of Acadia, Lafayette and Vermilion included in the district. There is an office in each parish, usually near the parish courthouse.
