Multijuralism: Manifestations, Causes and Consequences
On the occasion of the launch of the book “Multijuralism: Manifestations, Causes and Consequences,” the Embassy hosted a reception for distinguished lawyers and legal experts. Published in both English and French, this original work is a result of unprecedented multi-year collaboration between French and Canadian jurists on the initiative of the ministries of justice of the two countries. The book examines, in a clear manner, the phenomenon of multijuralism, or the interpretation of laws originating from different legal systems.
The reception was attended by a number of authors of the book as well as by the representatives of the French and Canadian justice ministries: Yves Côté, Deputy Minister of Justice; André Roy, President of the Bar of the Outaouais; Prof. John Curry, Associate Professor in Common Law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ottawa; Prof. Albert Breton, Professor Emeritus in Economics at the University of Toronto; Ms. Anne des Ormeaux, Legal Counsel at Canada’s Department of Justice; Prof. Katharina Pistor of Columbia University; Prof. Pierre Salmon, Economist Emeritus of the Université de Bourgogne; and Mr. Eric Maitrepierre, the Head of the Department of European and International Affairs of France’s Ministry of Justice.
