The latest Journal of Civil Law Studies

A new volume of the Journal of Civil Law Studies has been issued. The journal was launched last year:

to promote a multidisciplinary and pluralistic approach, and to focus on the following themes:
  • The evolution of the law in mixed jurisdictions, chiefly Louisiana
  • The evolution of the civil law in an English speaking environment
  • The impact of globalization on the evolution of the civil law and the common law
  • The impact of the civil law and the common law outside the western world and their interrelation with other legal traditions
  • Bridging the divide between civil law and common law in the American hemisphere and in the European area
  • The combination of the civil law and common law traditions in the harmonization and unification processes, with a focus on linguistic issues.

The contents of the current volume include:


  • Jacques Vanderlinden, ‘Aux origines de la culture juridique française en Amérique du Nord’
  • Olivier Moréteau, ‘The Future of Civil Codes in France and Louisiana’
  • Andrea Borroni & Charles Tabor, ‘Caveat Emptor’s Current Role in Louisiana and Islamic Law: Worlds Apart yet Surprisingly Close’
  • Catherine Piché, ‘The Cultural Analysis of Class Action Law’
  • Georges A Cavalier & Thomas Straub, ‘Mergers and Acquisitions Comparative Economic Analysis of Laws: France vs USA’
