Chair for French Public Law. Prof. Dr. Philippe Cossalter
Chair for French Public Law
The Chair of French Public Law at Saarland University is part of the Centre juridique franco-allemand (French-German Law Center) (www.cjfa.eu).
Its current holder is Philippe Cossalter, agrégé des factultés de droit.
The Chair for French Public Law and the Chair for French Private Law are unique institutions in Germany and perhaps in Europe. They are occupied by French professors, whose task is to teach French law, in French, to students of the CJFA.
In addition to teaching activities, the Chair of French Public Law is involved in research and publications.
One of the Chair’s missions is to administer the BIJUS project, initiated by the previous Chairholder Professor Christian Autexier.
As a sign of the strong attachment to legal informatics that marks the activity of the Chairholder the Chair for French Public Law has also created and runs the Revue générale du droit (www.revuegeneraledudroit.eu) and supports the edition of the French Yearbook of Public Law.
The website of the Franco-German Law Centre (www.cjfa.eu) contains a great deal of information about the teaching activities of the two Chairs. This website is intended to present the research activities and publications of the Chair.
