CCLS French Translators Visiting the Louisiana Supreme Court and Law Library

On June 25, 2014, Prof. Olivier Moréteau drove the CCLS translation team to New Orleans for a tour of the Supreme Court of Louisiana. The visit of the Rare Books Room of the Louisiana Law Library was a highlight, with the thrill of the direct contact with original versions of Civil Codes and other historical documents, under the guidance of Library Director Georgia Chadwick and Associate Library Director Miriam Childs. Many thanks to Robert Gunn for the tour and to David Rigamer for the photos.
