​The purposes of this 2018 edition of the Pocket Civil Code of Louisiana are the same as those of the previous yearly editions, while also acquainting the reader with materials helpful in better understanding the essence of a codified law.

As with all prior editions, the 2018 edition of the Pocket Civil Code is meant to be a "user-friendly" tool, with an accessible, bare-bones presentation of the Code articles. It is easy to handle and simple to read, without the distracting references to cases that tend to be the main focus of attention of lawyers. Thus, this presentation is aimed mostly at emphasizing the ranking of legislation as the imperative and primary source of law in the Louisiana civil law tradition as stated in articles 1 and 2 of the Civil Code.
