New Orleans Laws

NOLA is more than just any old port city. It has a one-of-a-kind character and swagger that fits its unique history, culture, and, yes, courts. While being the largest city in Louisiana, the Crescent City traces its legal roots to France, Spain, and ancient Rome. Chances are, it’s different from anything you’ve seen represented on TV or at the movies. To help you through the confusion, FindLaw has a series of articles to help understand common legal issues faced by residents, local laws, and the city’s court structure. You can also find a directory for additional help in Orleans and surrounding parishes.
