High spin states of 126La have been populated using the reaction 116Sn+14N at 68 MeV. $\gamma$-rays and conversion electrons were detected with the GAREL array. Multipolarities of the lowest-lying in-band dipole transitions have been determined from the deduced internal conversion coefficients. Experimental B(M1)/B(E2) ratios have been derived for the bands and compared with calculated values using the Dönau-Frauendorf geometrical model. Configurations are proposed for the bands comparing them with cranked shell model calculations and on the basis of the measured B(M1)/B(E2) ratios. The $\beta$-decay of 126La has also been revisited. The population of the 126Ba levels gives a probable spin value of five for the decaying high-spin 126La state with $T_{1/2}{\approx}64$ s which may indicate a signature inversion in the $\pi$h11/2$\nu$h11/2 band.
