Louisiana lawyers at home in Iraq

Louisiana's civil-law heritage helps its lawyers understand Iraq's legal system, according to this AP story:

One of the lawyers, Capt. Dan Stigall, said he found similarities between the two systems as soon as he opened an Iraqi law book.

"It was interesting to open it up and say, 'Gosh, we do share so much,'" said Stigall, who earned his law degree at Louisiana State University and spent six months working with Iraq's courts last year.

The story features quotations from Bernie McLaughlin and former LSU law professor Christopher Blakesley.
