Professor Geoffrey Samuel, Kent Law School

Does law exist? This may seem at first sight an esoteric question, but a range of publications in France (and elsewhere) over the last thirty years or so have, it will be claimed, contributed to making this question an important and relevant one.

Professor Sébastien Pimont, Sciences Po Law School

L’étude du phénomène de « décriture du droit » conduit à penser que l’activité de description du droit (consistant à écrire en ayant l’intention de le décrire) transforme l’objet décrit (à proprement parler, cette activité informe l’ordre juridique).

Professor Catherine Valcke, University of Toronto Faculty of Law

Law comprises several dimensions, the respective significance of which differs depending on whom one talks to. Comparative lawyers can be expected to privilege those that make law … comparable
