On Wednesday, April 9, 2014, the Law Library of Louisiana will sponsor a free CLE entitled “François Gény: A Louisiana Judge’s Best Friend” presented by Dr. François-Xavier Licari. Dr. Licari will identify sociological, historical and cultural factors that contributed to Louisiana’s unique reception of the “free objective search for a rule” as set forth in François Gény’s manifesto, Méthode d’interprétation et sources en droit privé positif, and he will study expressions of such successful reception, analyzing some leading cases of the Louisiana Supreme Court.
Dr. François-Xavier Licari is Associate Professor of Private Law at the University of Lorraine, France. He holds a Ph.D. in law from the University of Strasbourg (France) and the University of Saarland (Germany). Professor Licari’s scholarship appears in French, German and American law reviews (The American Journal of Comparative Law, The Louisiana Law Review, Tulane Law Review).
