Two Hundred Years of Legal Translation in Louisiana

On September 26 and 27, Professor Olivier Moréteau was a guest of the University of Maastricht, The Netherlands, to present at the Symposium on Law and Language, organized by the International Association of Legal Science and the Netherlands Comparative Law Association. He presented on “Two Centuries of Legal Translation in Louisiana: Development and Promotion of the Civil Law in English,” explaining how in the course of the past two centuries, Louisiana has contributed a legal terminology to express the civil law in English, and why this terminology must be preferred to common law terminology when producing or translating legal texts conveying concepts that belong to the civil law tradition.
