Description

With obscure terms like 'emphyteusis' and 'jactitation,' the language of Louisiana's civil law can sometimes be confusing for students and even for seasoned practitioners. But the 'Louisiana Civil Law Dictionary' can help. It defines every word and phrase contained in the index to the Louisiana Civil Code, plus many more--in clear and concise language--and provides current citations to the relevant statutes, code articles, and cases. 

Whether you are a student, researcher, lawyer, or judge, if you deal with Louisiana and its laws, this volume will prove indispensable. It is also a valuable resource for notaries and paralegals, and for bar exam preparation. No doubt common law practitioners in other states, too, will find ready uses for a dictionary that translates civil law terminology into familiar concepts; they will know how 'naked ownership' differs from 'usufruct.' And since the civil law dominates the world's legal systems, this book will find a home with libraries and scholars outside the U.S., anywhere there is a need to compare civil law terms with those of the common law.

Quality ebook formatting from Quid Pro Books features active contents, linked notes and URLs, and hundreds of linked cross-references for ready association of related topics. Print editions are available of this valuable resource, yet the ebook format is not just a textual replication of the print book or a PDF; instead, the ebook is carefully designed to take full advantage of the digital ereader's optimal arrangements and hyperlinking. 

"Rome and Kinsella have done a huge service to legal scholarship by assembling the 'Louisiana Civil Law Dictionary' -- a splendid resource for those seeking to understand the rich vocabulary of Louisiana law."
--Bryan A. Garner, President, LawProse, Inc.; and Editor in Chief, 'Black's Law Dictionary'

"For ready reference on the desk or in a personal or law firm library, in the office of a civilian of any walk of practice or intellectual endeavor, this enormously helpful dictionary is a must. This scholarly reference is essential to the study of the civil law tradition; the 'Louisiana Civil Law Dictionary' serves as a gateway to understanding the civil law system embraced by the majority of legal systems in the world."
--J. Lanier Yeates, Member, Gordon Arata McCollam Duplantis & Eagan, LLC
