Louisiana Judiciary

From dKosopedia

Louisiana Judiciary.

Louisiana’s legal system is based on the French Code Napoleon, but it has been gradually changed to conform to the system practiced in other states of the U.S.

The highest court is the supreme court with 7 members elected to 10-year terms. The justice with seniority in office becomes the chief justice for the remainder of his or her term.

Next highest are courts of appeal, with a total of 48 judges elected to 10-year terms.

The main trial courts in Louisiana are the district courts, which have a total of 194 judges elected to 6-year terms.
