Abstract

This article is a comparative study of the Dutch and French legal systems regarding four major points of the French governmental reform project for civil liability : concurrence of actions; limitation and exemption clauses; causation; the obligation to mitigate your own damage. It also addresses the following issues: the question of damages to the environment, and the role of transitional provisions. Through these different areas of study, this article shows that the traditional distinction between contractual and tortuous liability is not necessarily relevant and may even prove a nuisance in certain cases. The contribution is followed by a reaction of Mme. De Cabarrus, magistrate at the French Ministry of Justice.
