Any decision about Louisiana collateral, financing, lending, mortgages, guarantees, liens and privileges, and collection procedures must take into account that Louisiana is the only state in the nation with civil law (rather than common law). Louisiana's Civil Code, with rules that trace back to the Napoleonic Code, and related statutes are the key to understanding this area of law. The Precis series of titles provides a comprehensive view of all of these topics and more. Areas covered by Louisiana Law of Security Devices include: • Suretyship and guarantees, including rules pertaining to Louisiana's categories of commercial, legal, and ordinary sureties; • Mortgage lending, including creation of mortgage, the types of Louisiana mortgages (conventional, legal and judicial), necessary provisions for a valid mortgage and desirable provisions for judicial execution on mortgages, and mortgage ranking; • Louisiana's law of registry and public records; • Title examination; • The interrelationship of the U.C.C. with Louisiana mortgage laws; • Securing interests in leases, in a rental income stream, and in leased property; • Judicial and non-judicial foreclosure rules, including the Louisiana Deficiency Judgment Act; • Louisiana liens and privileges, including general privileges as well as special privileges on both movable and immovable property; and • The Louisiana Private Works Act, governing materialmen's liens. Louisiana Law of Security Devices contains, in easy-to-understand, non-legalese language: • A detailed discussion of all of the key Civil Code articles and other statutes • Numerous examples of how these rules interrelate; • Examples of how to resolve complex issues of ranking security devices • Practical "how to" tips for practitioners; and • Warnings of potential traps for the unwary in drafting and negotiating lending documents.

For the first time, readers will find here in one place a clear and up-to-date discussion of all of the various “security devices” in Louisiana law, including the most current Louisiana version of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, mortgages, statutory liens (“privileges”), and personal guarantees (“suretyship”). Written to be easily accessible by non-experts, this book offers both a basic introduction and a detailed but concise explanation of the operation of each of the available security devices, including the complex rules for determining priority among the various devices when they compete with each other, a trustee in bankruptcy, or the Internal Revenue Service. With the help of a logically structured and detailed table of contents, as well as simple illustrations of particularly complex topics, students and lawyers can solve difficult problems with minimal effort. By bringing all of this material together in a clear and focused framework, this book is designed to reduce study and research time for complex secured transactions questions and to increase students' and lawyers' confidence in the resolution of often difficult and confusing commercial law problems in the unique environment of Louisiana law. Jason Kilborn is a professor at Louisiana State University Law Center.

English summary: This volume deals with the contract law of the European legal systems. What are the essential rules of these systems on the formation and validity of contracts? What rules apply to a party's right to bring a claim for performance, to terminate the contract or to claim damages for breach? While the discussion is based on the national rules, they are taken into account only as local variations on a European theme. To what extent is it therefore possible to speak of a common European law of contract? What contributions do the "Principles of European Contract Law" and the proposal of the "Draft Common Frame of Reference" make? This book is not only aimed at helping to teach young Europeans lawyers, but also strives to assist those engaged in the reform of national contract law or the drafting of uniform European legislation. The first 1996 edition of the volume has now been updated and completed. German description: Unter "Europaischem Vertragsrecht" versteht dieses Buch die Regeln, die den Rechtsordnungen der europaischen Lander gemeinsam sind: Wie kommt ein gultiger Vertrag zustande? Nach welchen Regeln wird beurteilt, ob eine Vertragspartei die Erfullung des Vertrages verlangen, von dem Vertrag Abstand nehmen, ihn widerrufen oder kundigen oder den Kontrahenten auf Schadensersatz in Anspruch nehmen kann? Lassen sich auf dem Gebiet des Vertragsrechts gemeineuropaische Strukturen auffinden? Gibt es allgemein akzeptierte Regeln? Wie sind sie zu formulieren, wenn man die "Prinzipien des Europaischen Vertragsrechts" oder die Vorschlage des "Draft Common Frame of Reference" berucksichtigt? Dabei werden die Losungen der nationalen Rechtsordnungen ausfuhrlich - wenn auch stets nur als nationale Variationen eines europaischen Themas - behandelt. Das Buch kann deshalb bei der rechtsvergleichenden Ausbildung der jungen europaischen Juristen eine Rolle spielen, ferner auch dort, wo e s um die Vorbereitung europaischen Gesetzesrechts oder um die Reform der nationalen Vertragsrechte geht. Das Buch ist in einer ersten unvollstandigen Auflage schon 1996 erschienen. Die Neuauflage bringt den Text auf den neuen Stand und erganzt ihn um die damals noch fehlenden Abschnitte.
