The chief purpose of this book is to assist increasing numbers of students involved in Anglo-French Law programmes to work out the techniques of legal analysis in France in the course of their legal studies in French Law. The book also brings together the theory and practice of legal reasoning in France in a comparative perspective. The book covers the core areas found at the beginning of a French Law degree, such as the legislative process, statutory interpretation, codification, case law, law reform, judges, reasoning, judicial style and case notes. It also includes a chapter on legal education with example legal exercises, essays, a problem question and a case study, as well as advice on examinations in French Law. Law reform in England increasingly concerns itself with an examination of the legal method employed in Continental legal systems - particularly France - and this book makes an ideal tool for those involved in the practice and research surrounding law reform.
