Rémy Cabrillac- Université de Montpellier. France

Rémy Cabrillac Professor at the University of Montpellier (France), where he is director of the private law department of the Law School, is the author of a dozen monographs in civil law, among which “Les codifications” has been translated into several languages ​​(Russian, Spanish, Romanian and is being translated into Chinese). He has more than one hundred and fifty publications in French and foreign magazines as well as collaborations in collective works, published both in France and in other countries.

He has been director of 40 doctoral thesis.

He has been appointed as an expert to carry out advisory activities in the field of civil law or codification by different governments and administrations (New Caledonia, China, Cameroon, Chile ..).

He is a member of different international associations such as the “Societe de Legislation Comparé” or the “Henri Capitant Association” and a member of the editorial board of a dozen legal journals in the world



His project consists in considering the perspectives of modernization of the Spanish law of contracts in a perspective of comparative law.

In 2009, the Spanish General Codification Commission presented a “Proposal to modernize the Civil Code in terms of obligations and contracts” that, despite its merits and the interest aroused in the scientific community, has not received the necessary institutional impulse to become a legal text.

For this reason it is interesting to carry out a comparative reflection on the opportunity and content of a possible legislative reform on the matter in the light of various upcoming foreign experiences, especially the law of countries that have historical links with Spain (Latin American countries) or who have recently reformed their right to obligations (Germany, France).
