The purpose of the Assises du Code civil is to launch a speech with the actors of the legal world and anyone interested in the modernization of our Civil Code.
Organized in two parts, a first methodological session was held on May 7, 2021.
During this first session, the debates focused on the methods to be adopted for future reforms, as well as on the criteria for determining the order of priority of the reforms, as well as on the consideration of foreign rights.
The second session to be held this Friday, October 15, aims to examine the main themes of the Civil Code in order to assess those that deserve a 2021 overhaul, the nature, scope and priority of it. It will bring together experts in Luxembourg law, as well as eminent French and Belgian jurists who will shed light on the reforms underway or already carried out in the respective countries.
