The French Code of Civil Procedure in English 2007 provides an expert translation of the complete Civil Code of France, including all changes made within the past year. The French Civil Code, a descendant of the Code Napoleon, provides a detailed description of the court system, including appeals and arbitration procedures, as well as the laws governing all aspects of French life, from public elections to marriage and divorce. It also includes footnotes explaining hard-to-translate terms, an extensive glossary of French legal terms, and a practical topic index.
The code includes four main categories of topics:
Provisions common to all courts, such as action, jurisdiction, grounds of defense, and settlement
Specific provisions relating to each court, including regional, district, local, criminal, and commercial courts
Specific provisions with respect to certain matters, such as persons, matrimonial regimes, obligations, and contracts
Arbitration, which focuses on arbitration agreements, proceedings, the arbitral award, rights of recourse, international arbitration, and recognition, enforcement, and recourses.
The 2007 edition reflects the changes made to over 119 separate articles in the past year, including those provisions relating to challenges to the court and/or judge assigned to the case, matrimonial and divorce procedures, successions and donations, and property actions, specifically those relating to the sale of immovables and businesses belong to minors and/or their adult guardians.
Because the civil code is updated on a continual and regular basis, the current up-to-date version is a must-have for any business or academic institution needing to refer to it.
