American Law Center in Paris
The Cornell Sun reports that on July 17 chief justices from Europe and the United States will gather in Paris to dedicate the Cornell University Center for Documentation on American Law, which will contain American court decisions and law reviews from Cornell’s Law Library. The 13,000-volume collection will be housed in France’s Court of Cassation, the highest court in the French judicial order. In addition to providing print sources, Cornell’s law librarians will also offer electronic assistance and training in online research. Cornell law librarian and former AALL president Claire Germain has been working with French judges to meet the Court of Cassation’s needs.
