Is 101.325 J/ (L. atm) used to convert L.atm to Joules? Where did this proprotion come from?

It comes from the gas constants (this is provided on the list of constants).
Gas constant, R = 8.314 (J)/(K*mol) = 8.206 x 10^-2 (L*atm)/(K*mol)

Since the values equal each other, 8.314 (J)/(K*mol) / 8.206 x 10^-2 (L*atm)/(K*mol) equals to 1.
Cancel out the units and you get 101.316 (J)/(L*atm), which you can use to convert L*atm into J.
