This seminar covers selected civil law institutions with emphasis on the laws of property, obligations, community property, and successions. The Seminar is designed to sum up student experience in the civilian tradition. Louisiana law is studied in comparison with the common law of sister states and the laws of European countries. Doctrinal study is applied to the resolution of legal issues in contemporary practice. There is no final examination requirement.
