We can try for FREE to take part in one talk (Thursday evening 7:00 pm) OR one conversation hour (see 'Practice your English' tab).

Thursday, February 11th : Avocat & lawyer.

One of our members Elizabeth Sainte Marie Pricot, who is a practicing lawyer in France, will tell us about her work and speak about american and french judicial systems: between confluences and différences.!

First, there will ba a little presentation about the french and american judicial systems, their operating mode and their history to see how they have been influenced by one another.

On a second part, the speaker will specifically talk about french and american lawyers, how we become lawyers in these countries, the relation between the citizen and its judicial system and for the funny touch, how these professionals are seen in their countries through movies and series.

Both in French and US cinema, lawyers were butts of jokes.
