LL.M. Tour at the Louisiana Supreme Court

On August 5th, 2016, Prof. O. Moréteau and Christabelle Lefebvre accompanied the five new LL.M. candidates to New Orleans for a team-building and sightseeing tour, including a visit to the Louisiana Supreme Court and the Louisiana Law Library, in the splendid court building at 400 Royal Street. The visit of the Rare Books Room is always a highlight!
