Cornell Law School Collaborates with French Cour de Cassation

Cornell Law School is establishing a Center for Documentation on American Law at the French Cour de Cassation in Paris. The Cornell Law Library is shipping 13,000 volumes to the French Court, and offering electronic research assistance. The Center will be dedicated before an audience of the world's leading jurists at a groundbreaking international judicial conference set to take place in Paris July 17, 2007...
The venture, which has been supported by the Court's First President, Guy Canivet, (who was subsequently promoted to the Conseil Constitutionnel), will enable the French judiciary to better familiarize themselves with American law and will lead to enhanced dialogue between judges and academics of the two countries. Read the original annoucement of this venture at the Cornell Law School's webpage here.
