About this product
- DescriptionHistorians have long viewed Louisiana as an amaly in the American judicial system-an eccentric appendage at the mouth of the Mississippi River. The diverse Creole culture and civilian heritage of the state's legal system have led many scholars to conclude that it is an anachronism in American law unworthy of serious attention. Others embrace this tradition and revel in the minutiae of the Pelican State's unique civil law legacy. In From Chaos to Continuity, Mark F. Fernandez challenges both perspectives. Using the invative methods of the New Louisiana Legal History, he offers the first comprehensive analysis of the role of the courts in the development of Louisiana's legal system and convincingly argues that the state is actually a representative model of American law and justice.
- Author BiographyMark F. Fernandez is associate professor of history at Loyola University New Orleans and coeditor of A Law unto Itself? Essays in the New Louisiana Legal History.
