Articles from the Louisiana Bar Journal on the Celebration of the Bicentennial of the Louisiana Supreme Court

The Louisiana Bar Journal has granted the Louisiana Supreme Court permission to post five articles from the April/May 2013 issue on its Bicentennial website. These articles were written to commemorate the Court’s Bicentennial and were part of a year-long celebration of the Court’s first 200 years. The richly illustrated articles cover a wide arc of the Court’s history and provide new perspectives on how the Court developed into the institution it is today.
