French Hub

Launch of the Hub

The French Hub was launched on 5 December 2012 in Paris. The Hub aims to encourage ELI members living in France to take an active part in the Institute’s work. It was created to assist in arranging occasional presentations of the ELI’s work and to facilitate discussion of ELI projects in the native language of the Institute’s French-speaking members and in the presence of the professional organisations which have become ELI Observers. Should you wish to join the Hub, please e-mail the ELI Secretariat.

Upcoming event

On 4–5 May 2018 the Faculty of Law of the Lyon Catholic University (France), the University of Florida (USA) and the University of Turin (Italy) as well as with the European Law Institute (ELI) French and Italian Hubs, are organising a conference on the Impact of Technology on International Contract Law: Smart Contracts and Blockchain Technologies.
