Titles > First Amendment Law in Louisiana

First Amendment Law in Louisiana-first amendment law in louisiana, william davie, michael maher
First Amendment Law in Louisiana

edited by William R. Davie and T. Michael Maher

First Amendment Law in Louisiana chronicles the First Amendment’s robust career in Louisiana, which has a legal tradition unlike that of any other state. Louisiana’s legal heritage derives from both continental law and common law, which gives its body of laws a hybrid vigor that serves as a better model for understanding freedom of expression in politics and business around the world.

Although First Amendment Law in Louisiana was chiefly written for a college student readership, practicing attorneys and the general public will find this book’s chapters invaluable to understanding the legal principles and precedents behind many of the issues of the day.
