Funeral and Cemetery Law
In Louisiana, the funeral and cemetery industry is regulated by various statutes and regulations enforced by administrative bodies with authority to oversee the operations of funeral homes and cemeteries across the state. In these industries, legal advice is often needed and wisely sought on questions involving the right to control disposition of remains, cremation, funeral goods and services, title to burial spaces, perpetual care trusts, preparation of reports to the funeral or cemetery boards, and proposed legislation effecting funeral homes, cemeteries, and their customers.
