I would like to inform you of two lectures.

The first one, to be held on September 21 at my university, the University of Rouen, is organized by Fabienne Jault Sseke and David Robine and will deal with the European law of insolvency proceedings. There will be three roundtables. The first roundtable, chaired by Professor Jocelyne Vallansan of the University of Caen, concerns the change of the initial rules.The second, chaired by Professor Paul Le Cannu of the Ecole do droit de la Sorbonne, concerns the adoption of new rules. The third, chaired by Professor Gilles Cuniberti of the University of Luxembourg, concerns the point of view of other member states of the European Union. This is the second conference on this topic that Fabienne Jault and David Robine have organized. The first one took place on May 11, 2004 and was entitled The International Effect of Bankruptcy: A Reality?

The conference will be held in French. To attend, please contact:

The second event is an e-colloque that will take place in Montreal on October 22, organized by the Chambre des huissiers de justice de Quebec. It deals with the use of new technologies in other countries to “advance the cause of Quebec justice.” The conference will feature workshops and introductory and concluding plenary sessions. The four workshops will concern:

  • Framework for information technologies
  • How can the use of information technologies promote access to justice?
  • Security and information technologies: a snapshot
  • Computerization of the legal system

The conference will be held in both English and French with translations available. Information is available at the conference website.
