There are strict formalities that must be adhered to in order for a court to validate a will. In recent Louisiana cases, wills were held invalid. A few requirements include: a) either hand written or typed and signed in front of a notary and 2 witnesses; b) signed and dated on the bottom of each page; and c) contain a proper attestation clause.
