Liability for products : English law, French law, and European harmonization by Simon Whittaker( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comparative study considers the French and English laws governing all those who may be liable for products: their producers, their suppliers, their users, and their regulators. To do so, it examines in both systems the private law of tort and contract and aspects of the civil process which are important in determining liability; the administrative law concerning failures to regulate or control product safety; and the liability for products of suppliers of public services, such as water or healthcare. It considers how the substantive criminal offences affecting product safety, whether particular to products or under more general law, relate to civil liability or to compensation. The emerging picture reveals two complex and significantly different patterns of liability for products in the English and French systems, cutting across the traditional boundaries of private law, public law, and criminal law."--Jacket
Good faith in European contract law( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For some Western European legal systems the principle of good faith has proved central to the development of their law of contracts, while in others it has been marginalised or even rejected. This book surveys the use or neglect of good faith
Reforming the French law of obligations : comparative reflections on the Avant-projet de réforme du droit des obligations et de la prescription the Avant-projet Catala by John Cartwright( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2005 Avant-projet de reforme du droit des obligations et de la prescription, also dubbed the Avant-projet Catala, suggests the most far-reaching reform of the French Civil code since it came into force in 1804. It reviews central aspects of contract law, the law of delict and the law of unjustified enrichment. There is currently a very lively debate in France as to the merits or the demerits of both the particular draft provisions and the general idea of recodification as such. This volume is the first publication to introduce the reform proposals to an English speaking audience. It contains the official English translation of the text, and distinguished private lawyers from both England and France analyse and assess particularly interesting aspects of the substantive draft provisions in a comparative perspective. The topics covered include negotiation and renegotiation of contracts, la cause, the enforcement of contractual obligations, termination of contract and its consequences, the effects of contracts on third parties, the definition of la faute, the quantification of damages, and the law of prescription. The volume also contains an overall assessment of the draft provisions by one of the most senior French judges who chaired the Working Party on the Avant-projet, established by the French Supreme Court, the Cour de cassation. It is useful to all private lawyers (both academics and practitioners) looking for information on recent international and European trends in contract and tort. It contains up-to-date translations of the new French legislation and cases in contract and tort. This is the most comprehensive study of the reformed French law. It is indispensable for comparative private lawyers and lawyers with a particular interest in French law
The development of product liability by Simon Whittaker( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mass production and changes in distribution chains have severely restricted the power of the seller and the buyer to use their own skill and judgement. As a result, 'product liability' has developed into a distinct area of legal regulation. Traditional legal techniques, such as the warranty against latent defects in contract and fault in tort, proved inadequate safeguards. This examination of western-European legal systems combines legal history and comparative law to demonstrate how tort law has adapted to meet these new conditions
The Code Napoléon rewritten : French contract law after the 2016 reforms by John Cartwright( Book )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2020 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The provisions of the French Civil Code governing the law of obligations remained largely unchanged since 1804 and have served as the model for civil codes across the world. In 2016, the French Government effected major reforms of the provisions on the law of contract, the general regime of obligations and proof of obligations. This work explores in detail the most interesting new provisions on French contract law in a series of essays by French lawyers and comparative lawyers working on French law and other civil law systems. It will make these fundamental reforms accessible to an English-speaking audience.--
Good faith in European contract law( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For some western European legal systems the principle of good faith has proved central to the development of their law of contracts, while in others it has been marginalized or even rejected. This book starts by surveying this use or neglect of good faith in these legal systems and by looking at the notion's historical origins. Its central part takes 30 hypothetical situations which have attracted the application of good faith, analyzes them according to 15 national legal systems and assesses the practical significance of both the principle of good faith and its relationship to other contractual and non-contractual doctrines and forms of regulation in each situation. The book concludes by explaining how European lawyers, whether from a civil or common law background, need to come to terms with the principle of good faith
Regards comparatistes sur l'avant-projet de réforme du droit des obligations et de la prescription( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French civil liability in comparative perspective( Book )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The French law of torts or of extra-contractual liability is widely seen as exceptional. For long it was based on a mere five articles of the Civil Code of 1804, but on this foundation the courts and legal scholars have constructed liabilities for fault and of strict liability of an extraordinary breadth and significance. While the rest of the general law of obligations (including contract) in the Civil Code was reformed in 2016 by executive ordonnance, this area was left aside, being the subject in 2017 of a proposal by the French Government for the legislative reform of the law of civil liability, a new legislative category to include both contractual and extra-contractual liability. This work considers important aspects of this area of French law in the light of these proposals in a series of essays by French lawyers and comparative lawyers working in French law and other civil law systems. In doing so, it provides insight into the doctrinal thinking and judgments of policy of French lawyers as well as the possible directions in which this area of the law may be developed in the future"--
Le nouveau droit des contrats : guide bilingue à l'usage du praticien = [The new french contract law : a guide for practitioners] by François Ancel( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème de couv. indique : "Ce guide a été rédigé par des auteurs qui ont participé à l'élaboration de la réforme du droit des contrats. Son objectif est d'expliquer les principales modifications apportées par cette réforme, à la lumière des enjeux internes, européens et internationaux de l'époque. Il est aussi de donner à tous, notamment aux praticiens, les outils nécessaires pour répondre à des questions pratiques essentielles : date de l'entrée en vigueur des textes, caractère supplétif ou impératif de telle ou telle disposition, office du juge, champ d'application international des nouveaux textes, etc. De plus en plus de contrats, quoique soumis au droit français, sont négociés et rédigés en anglais. Répondant à une demande forte des praticiens, les auteurs ont écrit ce guide en français et en anglais. La terminologie qu'ils ont utilisée est celle qui a été adoptée par la traduction anglaise des textes, elle-même reproduite dans l'ouvrage et sur le site du ministère de la Justice. Une introduction, rédigée par les auteurs britanniques de la traduction, apporte un éclairage inédit et utile sur les termes anglais retenus."
