The Louisiana public records doctrine and the civil law tradition
This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the law governing recordation of land titles as it has been developed in doctrine & legislation in Europe & the rest of the Civil-law world, including the state of Louisiana. The author introduces American readers to nine fundamental principles of recordation law that are the product of generations of work by civilian lawyers & commentators, & that permit him to explicate the law of recordation, both common & Civil, with an unprecedented degree of clarity & thoroughness. This wide-ranging treatise should be useful both to members of the Louisiana bench & bar & to teachers & practitioners of real-estate law wherever situated. Publications Institute, Paul M.
