In 2012, the LSU Law Center received formal approval from the Louisiana Board of Regents and the LSU Board of Supervisors to establish an Energy Law Center, the first such center in Louisiana and one of a handful operating in law schools nationwide. The Center will prepare lawyers for the full range of 21st century practice in the complex world of energy law.  The Certificate in Energy Law & Policy will be available to qualified students beginning in spring 2015.

Unlike modern Codes, articles are not numbered in a continuous manner. The numbering restarts with article 1, at the beginning of each Title.

The following example shows how you may cite the Digest Online:

Article 1 of Title 3 (Of Contracts and of Conventional Obligations in General) of Book 3 (Of the Different Manners of Acquiring the Property of Things) reads:
