The French Code of Civil Procedure in English 2008 provides an expert translation of the complete Civil Code of France. 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. The 2008 edition reflects changes made to the Code since June 2007. 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.
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.show more
