Louisiana is a mixed legal jurisdiction with strong ties to French and Spanish Civil Law. There are differences between the civil law practiced in Louisiana and the common law practiced in the other 49 states. Although some of those differences have been bridged, some of the secondary materials discussed in this lesson vary greatly from the secondary materials of other jurisdictions.
This CALI lesson is designed to familiarize the reader with Louisiana secondary legal research materials. You will learn about the various secondary source materials and how to properly use both print and online versions of the materials.
