Lending Library

The Lending Library offers a variety of books on various topics to assist attorneys in the improvement of their practice. Members in good standing are welcome to browse the Lending Library's list of titles (scroll below).  You may borrow up to three titles per lending period and may pick your order up at the LSBA Bar Center or have your order delivered to you. 

  • To order books and arrange for shipment or pick up, please contact Lucia Anderson at 504.619.0110, lucia.anderson@lsba.org and complete this self-explanatory form.  Books are no longer able to be reserved online at this time. 

  • To request additional material or suggest publications/ articles to be listed in this area please submit comments to Shawn Holahan


In 2000, the LSBA's Uniform Title Standards Committee took on the task of articulating standards relative to title examination in Louisiana.  The publication was meant as a common sense approach based on the then applicable statutes, jurisprudence and custom as these relate to the examination and approval of merchantable titles.  Though published in 2000, the publication remains a popular reference but it requires updating.  Because the publication continues to contain many useful tips for practitioners, the LSBA provides this link to the publication with the caution that practitioners should refine their research with jurisprudence and statutes post-dating the 2000 publication date of this material.
