In order to promote fundamental research in private law, the Québec Research Centre of Private and Comparative Law (now known as the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law) initiated the "Civil Law Workshop" series, bringing together jurists from Québec and beyond to work on related research topics.
