Comparative law – Unmissable videos (FR)

conseil_d_etatThe French Conseil d’Etat has made available, online, the full video recording of the inaugural symposium in a series entitled “Droit comparé et territorialité du droit“.

The website also includes some short interviews with the highly respected figures participating in the symposium: Érik Orsenna, Mireille Delmas-Marty, Dominic Grieve & Horatia Muir Watt.

If, as opposed to watching the symposium on the site of the Conseil d’État, you click through to the video on Vimeo, you can access the various portions of the symposium directly – as listed below.

You will also hear many insights into the English and more widely the common law system by Grieve and Muir Watt, speaking in French.
