Download Louisiana: Microcosm of a Mixed Jurisdiction epub
by Vernon Valentine Palmer
Palmer elucidates the nature of the Louisiana experience over the past two centuries. What were the original forces at work demographic, political, linguistic, and economic which produced this dual legal structure? Was it necessity or rather discretion which led to the founding of a mixed system? As Louisiana's French speaking population declined, would it be possible to sustain a vibrant civil law element? What kind of judges, judicial institutions, and legal education would emerge from these crosscurrents? In areas where judges exercised the choice of discretion, such as the development of commercial law and civil procedure, where would they turn? And what new creations would be generated by the constant interaction of common law and civil law?
Through these and other questions, this book serves to inform and stimulate new thinking about Louisiana and the far-flung world of mixed legal systems.
