Le droit à l’épreuve des siècles et des frontières. Mélanges Bertrand Ancel

It is my pleasure to announce the release of the Mélanges en l’honneur du Professeur Bertrand Ancel – Le droit à l’épreuve des siècles et des frontières.

Bertrand Ancel has devoted his academic career to private international law and civil law, enriched with comparative law and history. Professor emeritus of the University Paris II Panthéon-Assas, editor-in-chief of the Revue critique de droit international privé from 2014 to 2017, author of the Éléments d’histoire du droit international privé, he is also a co-author, with Yves Lequette, of the Grands arrêts de la jurisprudence française de droit international privé. Combining in-depth historical knowledge of conflict of laws and international litigation with accurate analysis of the most recent case law, Bertrand Ancel belongs to the scholars who preserve private international law from dogmatism.
