Report on the french avant-projet de réforme de la responsabilité civile

Abstract : After a meeting in Paris during which the director of the bureau de droit des obligations explained some of the needs of the ministry to us, we chose two main topics of study: the mitigation of damages and concurrence of action. However, beyond this focus some of our members were able to shed light on some further particular problems. This led us to create an additional section dedicated to some separate themes such as private penalty or the question of links. From this experimental work the topic of imputation and causation was addressed.We also added some relevant topics such as proportionality and transition law. More precisely, we conceived our work as an exchange between laws, leading us to build two national reports and comparing them.
