Reasons and Context in Comparative Law: Workshop to mark the retirement of Professor John Bell

The Centre for European Legal Studies (Cambridge) kindly sponsored a Comparative law workshop in honour of John Bell, who is retiring in September 2019. The workshop, which was organised by Dr Turenne, was a small gathering of colleagues and former students from Australia, Chile, France, the Netherlands, the USA in addition to colleagues and former students from Oxford and Cambridge. It was a fitting tribute to John from the Comparative law community – friends, colleagues, former students and mentees debating and weaving together, for a day and a half, many of John’s interests, from administrative law, religion and law to legal history or judicial culture, with some intricate tort and contract law comparisons between English and French laws along the way. A publication of the proceedings of this workshop will follow.
