French Legal System Summary

French Legal System by Catherine Elliott

This book provides a topical and highly readable introduction in English to the French legal system. It gives a detailed analysis of the sources of French law, the structure of the courts and legal profession, and the key characteristics of the legal process. It also includes practical material on university and vocational law studies in France in order to prepare the student for this experience. French Legal System provides a springboard for the study of more specific and substantive areas of French law. It has been inspired by the companion text French Legal System and Legal Language: An Introduction in French, by Elliott, Geirnaert and Houssais and builds upon the foundation knowledge and language skills provided in that text. The two books can be used together or separately, depending on the skills and knowledge to be developed.
