The Application of Foreign Law

In 2017, the French Cour de Cassation has promoted  a series of seven conferences on the application of foreign law, in partnership with the Société de législation comparée.

Theses conferences have just been published by the SLC.

Prefaced by Mr. Dominique Hascher, Judge at the Cour de cassation and President of the Société de législation comparée, the book contains the following contributions :

The last issue of the “Revue critique de droit international privé” will shortly be released. It contains several casenotes and three articles.

A new book co-edited by Gustavo Cerqueira and Nicolas Nord has been published:

The last issue of the “Revue critique de droit international privé” will shortly be released. It contains several casenotes and one article, authored by Professor Andrea Bonomi (Lausanne University): « La compétence internationale en matière de divorce.

The book Le Brexit, Enjeux régionaux, nationaux et internationaux (Bruylant, 2017), edited by Pr. Charles Bahurel, Pr. Elsa Bernard and Associate Pr. Marion Ho-Dac, has just been published. It includes a foreword, an introduction and papers from a three-days symposium on legal aspects of Brexit which took place in February and March 2017 in different universities.
The book is divided in three parts. The first is dedicated to the policy and institutional issues of Brexit and deals with Brexit preparation and post-Brexit relationships. The second part concerns EU citizenship and economic issues and deals with internal market and judicial cooperation in civil and commercial matters (see, inter alia, the contribution of Gilles Cuniberti on international economic aspects with a discussion paper by Emmanuel Guinchard and the contribution of Jean Sagot-Duvauroux on international family law aspects). It also focuses on some major actors of Brexit: EU citizens, students, patients, bankers and lawyers. The third part is devoted to criminal and immigration issues.

The Center of Legal Studies on Efficiency of the Contemporary Law Systems (Cejesco – University of Reims) organizes a conference at the Faculty of Law on 13 September 2017 on the evolution of Law in China.
