Historians to explore Spanish Louisiana at Tulane Law Nov. 4

November 02, 2016

Historians and legal experts are set to convene at Tulane Law School Nov. 4 to discuss the laws, customs and institutions of Spanish Louisiana and the Floridas. Topics range from legal representation for free and enslaved people of color in the era straddling the Louisiana Purchase to economic benefits extended to women in Spanish colonial Louisiana under the civil law.

The event is sponsored by Tulane Law School and The Portalis Society, which is named after Jean-Etienne Portalis, who wrote the French civil code in the early 19th century.

Presentations by the 12 speakers run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the faculty lounge of Tulane Law’s John Giffen Weinmann Hall.
