Foreign, Comparative, and International Law Collection

The Foreign, Comparative, and International Law Collection consists of over 90,000 volumes and comprises approximately twenty percent of the Law Library’s holdings.  The third floor of the library is entirely devoted to housing this collection.  The collection includes primary and secondary sources about and from countries around the world, and contains materials in English, French, and a variety of other languages.  The collection is especially rich in comparative law resources, as well as in resources from and about those countries and territories that have had a particular impact on the development of Louisiana law, or whose laws and legal systems are frequently used in comparison with the laws and legal system of Louisiana.
