NOTICE: Professor Vernon Palmer to Receive an Honorary Doctorate
I received word earlier today that Professor Vernon Palmer, President of the World Society of Mixed Jurisdiction Jurists and a member of our star-studded Advisory Board is to receive an honorary doctorate in Paris:
Professor Vernon Valentine Palmer of the Tulane Law School will be awarded an honorary doctorate by the President of the Université Paris-Dauphine on March 27th in Paris.
The title Doctor Honoris Causa is one of the most prestigious distinctions conferred by French universities upon foreign scholars with the approval of the French Foreign Affairs Ministry.
Professor Palmer will receive the doctorate “in consideration of his very important contribution to Comparative Law and for a better understanding between common law and civil law, not only in Louisiana and the USA, but also beyond the borders, in Asia and Europe.”
We add our sincere congratulations for a well-deserved honor.
