The purposes of this 2017 edition of the Pocket Civil Code of Louisiana are the same as those of the previous yearly editions but also meant to acquaint the reader with the knowledge of new books or materials helpful in better understanding the essence of a codified law. As all prior editions, the 2017 edition of the Pocket Civil Code is meant to be a `user-friendly¿ tool small by its size and accessible by its bare bone presentation of the Code articles. It is easy to handle, simple to read because one is not distracted by references to cases which tend to be the main focus of attention of lawyers. Thus this presentation is aimed mostly at emphasizing the ranking of legislation as `the¿ imperative and primary source of law in the Louisiana civil law tradition as stated in articles 1 and 2 of the Civil Code. Furthermore, the recent publication of two books will help the reader to go deeper into grasping the purpose of codification and the full meaning of ¿Code articles¿ be they from Louisiana, French, Quebec, Italian¿Civil Codes. In this respect we recommend a Carolina Academic Press publication: Deciphering a Civil Code and the Dictionary of the Civil Code by LexisNexis.

The primary purpose of this book is to dispel some misunderstandings -- or even erroneous views -- on what a ''code'' is and, more specifically, how one can work with a ''civil code.'' The text explains that in a civil law system, codification is the product of the combination of three sources of law: legislation, jurisprudence or court cases, and doctrine or legal scholarship. It then analyzes the many different methods of reasoning and interpretation that can be used under a civil code and illustrates these methods as applied to code articles and to three decisions of the Louisiana Supreme Court. Thus, the book explains and justifies the 'long lasting life'' of civil codes, particularly the French Civil Code of 1804 (also referred to as the Code Napoleon) and the Louisiana Civil Code of 1825.

This detailed analysis of the content and configuration of civil codes in diverse jurisdictions also examines their relationship with some branches of private law as: family law, commercial law, consumer law and private international law. It analyzes the codification, decodification and recodification processes illuminating the dialogue between current codes – and private law legislation in general – with Constitutions and International Conventions. The commentary elucidates the changing requirements of civil law as it shifted from an early protection of patrimony to a support for commercial and contractual law. It also explains the varying trajectories of civil law, which in some jurisdictions was merged with religious legal tenets in its codification of familial relations, while in others it was fused with commercial law or, indeed, codified from scratch as a discrete legal corpus. Elsewhere, the volume provides material on differing approaches to consumer law, where relevant legislation may be scattered across numerous statutes, and also on private international law, a topic of increasing relevance in a world where business corporations have interests in multiple jurisdictions (and often play one off against another). The volume features invited contributions from leading scholars in the field of private law brought together for an in depth analysis of the current regulatory attitude in this field of the law in jurisdictions with diverse legal systems and traditions. In current times we are witnessing the adoption of diverging regulatory solutions. Through the analysis of the past and present of private law regulation, the volume unveils the underlying trends and relevance of the codification method across the world.
