Join the Embassy of France in Washington, D.C. and the Consulate General of France in Louisiana on Zoom on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 for a panel discussion in French highlighting the use of the French language in Louisiana civil law. Louisiana is, to date, one of the few “laboratories” in which the civil law is written and spoken in another language.
The four specialists listed above will lead an exploration on the historical aspects of the adaptation of the French Napoleonic civil code into an English language civil code, the adaptation of the English language to the terms and ideas presented by the French civil code, as well as the contemporary issues surrounding the sustainability of continental private law.
