Retour aux sources du droit de la responsabilité civile

Wed, 2014-03-26 16:15 - 17:45
Chancellor Day Hall : NCDH 312, 3644 rue Peel Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1W9

Abstract

(In French only) Si les sources du droit ont pu être qualifiées de « délicieuses », elles deviennent une véritable gourmandise, confrontées au droit de la responsabilité civile. La gourmandise renvoie tant aux plaisirs qu’aux vices. Le plaisir qu’il y a à analyser les sources du droit de la responsabilité civile réside dans la mise en lumière d’une véritable interaction entre les sources. Le vice que révèle la confrontation d’une théorie des sources et du droit de la responsabilité est la persistance de certains conflits.
