On 16 November 2023 the Lyon 3 University will host a colloquium on the French Draft Code of Private international Law, organised by Ludovic Pailler.
The presentation of the colloquium reads as follows:
Following a mission statement, the working group charged with considering the codification of private international law, chaired by Mr. Ancel, submitted its report to the Minister of Justice on 31 March 2022. This was followed by a public consultation and the announcement, by the Minister of Justice, that the project would come to fruition. This codification has already been the subject of two scientific events at our establishment (i.e. Lyon 3 University). One was devoted to the code’s construction model, the other to its content (see here). The third event, to be held on 16 November 2023 in Lyon, concerns a comparative law analysis of the draft code.
The colloquium is divided into two parts. The first examines codification from the point of view of European Union member states. Both the value of this exercise and the practical ways in which it is carried out will be explored. Does French codification differ from its foreign equivalents? Is it expected? Doesn’t it run counter to European Union law? The second part of the presentation will be devoted to the point of views from outside the EU, with a view to testing the stated ambition of enhancing the attractiveness of French PIL, and analysing it in the light of experiences or initiatives undertaken in contexts where the subject is in decline (United States) or less integrated (Brazil).
The list of speakers and chairpersons includes : Olivier Gout, Cyril Nourissat, Ludovic Pailler, Frédérique Ferrand, Patrick Wautelet, Eva-Maria Kieninger, Pietro Franzina, Daniel Petrache, Hugues Fulchiron, Gian Paolo Romano, Yoko Nishitani, Chris Whytock, Gustavo Ferraz De Campos Monaco and Sabine Corneloup.
The event will be held in French and in English.
