Japanese Law, French Law: What are the Lessons for Legal Reform?
- Descartes Campus
On 17th: Sciences-Po Lyon On 18th : ENS de Lyon
The conference is devoted to international dialogue on law, between Japanese, French and German jurists, from the standpoint of legal reform. Japan and France have introduced a codified legal system, whose stability represents one of its major assets. However, codified law may also tend to inflexibility toward social change so that its perpetuation depends on legal reform. Yet, poorly conducted legal reform may cause distrust toward law and toward its suitability as a social regulator, leading, in the end, to social instability.
