Availability: In Stock
This book is intended to provide a practical understanding of litigation proceedings in Quebec. The approach taken is geared towards business persons and in-house counsel in Canada and abroad who may not be familiar with Quebec's legal system. The goal is to help them avoid the pains and surprises that can be experienced by not fully understanding the differences and particularities of litigation in other jurisdictions or systems. In this book, they will discover that the Quebec civil law system is very different from the common law system; and that French language issues are unique and sometimes a challenge for outsiders. Ce guide est conçu pour les gens d'affaires et juristes du Canada et d'autres pays qui ne sont pas nécessairement familiarisés avec le système juridique du Québec. Il présente le système juridique civil québécois, ses différences avec la common law et les difficultés et défis liés au fait français au Québec. Ce livre permettra une meilleure compréhension générale du processus judiciaire québécois et aidera ses lecteurs à éviter les mauvaises surprises qui découleraient de la transposition des concepts auxquels ils sont habitués dans leur pays devant les tribunaux au Québec.
