By: Marcel Planiol
This reprint discusses that as legal systems developed in the U.S., its states relied heavily on the writings of foreign legal scholars whose works were consistently aimed at the development of a code of general law that could be applied to their own nations. This reliance upon foreign laws was especially prevalent in Louisiana. Treatise on the Civil Law provides lawyers with a panoramic view of the historical development and underlying philosophy on which Louisiana’s Code was based.
