Civil Law Symposium Celebrating Tricentennial

Uptown Campus
Weinmann Hall

Featuring Tricentennial Civil Law Symposium

Louisiana’s civil law tradition is unique to the U.S., establishing legal and cultural principles that now span 300 years.

To honor the tricentennial of New Orleans as the capital of the Louisiana colony, the Tulane Law Eason Weinmann Center for International and Comparative Law, along with the Francophone Section of the Louisiana State Bar, will host a symposium dedicated to civil law, its history and its inextricable connections to the state.

Titled the Judge Allen M. Babineaux International Civil Law Symposium, the event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 1 from noon to 5 p.m. at Tulane Law School’s Room 110, 6329 Freret Street.

The symposium fee is $200 and includes two CLE credits. To register or become a sponsor of the event, email Warren Perrin at perrin@plddo.com or call (337) 456-7729.
