Julio Romañach, Jr. is a Cuban-born attorney admitted to the bars of Louisiana and Florida who received his primary and secondary education at Colegio de Belén, La Habana, Cuba and Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola, Río Piedras, Puerto Rico, respectively.  He attended college in Louisiana, a jurisdiction with civil-law roots, and received his B.A. degree (1974) from Louisiana State University and his J.D. degree (1978) from Louisiana State University School of Law.  He has translated numerous Latin American codes, as well as the Civil Code of Spain, into English.  In 1991, he translated the Puerto Rican Code of Private International Law from English into Spanish for the Puerto Rican Academy of Legislation and Jurisprudence (Academia Puertorriqueña de Legislación y Jurisprudencia).  Over the course of his career, he has worked extensively with legal documents, codes, statutes, regulations, judicial decisions, law review articles, treatises, and other commentary in Spanish originating from many different countries, in Portuguese (from both Brazil and Portugal), and in French.  For nearly thirty years, he was professionally associated with the Center of Civil Law Studies  of the LSU Law Center and the Louisiana State Law Institute, an offical law reform commission for the State of Louisiana.
