This innovative coursebook on Louisiana’s law of obligations covers the law of contractual obligations in particular and the General Principles that govern the whole law of “Obligations.” It features carefully edited excerpts from Louisiana judicial opinions and scholarly writings, as well as citations to pertinent articles of the Louisiana Civil Code. Additionally, this coursebook includes features that most others do not. Following each case is a series of questions, some designed to direct students to the significant points of the court’s analysis, others designed to deepen students’ understanding of civil law methodology. This book not only provides students (and lawyers) with a comprehensive introduction to Louisiana’s law of Obligations, but also invites readers to draw comparisons between that law and the complimentary law of other legal systems.
