Law, as an omnipresent entity, has become a major instrument of influence in a global context in which competition exceeds the boundaries of the economic and commercial spheres alone. Continental law continues to be widely enforced in the world, but the expansion of the so-called Common Law Anglo-Saxon legal system has resulted in a decline in the French legal culture. With a view to increasing its presence and gaining new ground on the European and international stages, our assembly emphasises the need to involve all public and private players in outlining a joint and methodical strategy for promoting continental law.
