Founded in 1978 by Professor Frank L. Maraist prior to the advent of the Internet, the Louisiana Civil Law and Procedure Newsletter for years was the go-to reference for legal updates for the Louisiana practitioner. Continuing that tradition, the Newsletter, now co-written by LSU Law Dean Tom Galligan, strives to provides the same succinct case summaries as before with the convenience of the computer age.
We try to update the published cases on a bi-weekly basis. Although only the more significant cases will be briefed, the newsletter will provide links to all published cases in the Louisiana courts of appeal and supreme court. In addition, we will provide updates on cases of particular importance to the Louisiana practitioner from other courts, chiefly the federal appellate and district courts. Links to state and federal courts, as well as other legal websites, are included for the subscriber’s convenience.
