Meeting in Leiden

Our 2017 Spring meeting took place in Leiden on June 8th and 9th. It was the occasion to introduce a new member, Marishka Neekilappillai, to agree on our next subjects of studies for the period 2018-2019, and to prepare our interventions at the Dutch Henri Capitant Association Anniversary celebration, which will take place in Leiden in September 2017. We also completed our application for the Van Gogh travel grant.

Article published in the RIDC

Our latest work on the French Civil Code reform was publish in April 2017 in the Revue Internationale de droit comparé.

Meeting in Paris and welcoming new members

In September 2016, the Grotius-Pothier research group met in Paris, hosted by the Dutch Ambassy. Amongst many other things, including the preparation of our next article, this was the occasion to introduce two new active members:

  • Maxime Cormier, who is doing a PhD about the unreasonable forced execution in French Contract Law at the University of Panthéon-Assas (Paris II).
  • Thijmen Nuninga, who is doing a PhD about remedies in Private Law at the University of Leiden.

And in May 2017, our group was joined by:

  • Pauline Ribbers, who is doing a PhD in Dutch Civil procedural Law at the University of Leiden.

Report submitted!

Our comparative law report was officially submitted to the French Chancellerie on July 29th 2016, just in time to meet the 31st July deadline. The amended project, published by the French Ministry of Justice on March 17th, proved to have taken some of our observations into consideration.

The group met in Leiden on June 20th – 22nd to finalize the report for the Chancellerie with representatives of the Dutch and French departments of Justice in charge of reforming Civil Law. We were glad to be featured on the website of the University of Leiden.
