Learn about the Spanish laws that are sources of modern family law, property law, civil procedure, and water law in Texas. See images of illuminated medieval manuscripts of Spanish laws, a Mexican legal code written by "Estevan" F. Austin, and letters from Spanish and Mexican officials describing early Texas law. Along the way, find out how Spanish and Mexican laws interacted with the law of Louisiana and the English common law to influence Texas law today.
