Research and doctrinal positions[edit]

Comparative law[edit]

Recognizing the importance of studies in comparative law for training lawyers, Guinchard pursued such studies beginning with his second doctorate, for which his dissertation compared French and Swiss law. He studied the university system in Quebec in 1971[22] and in 1973–74 returned for a study of consumer protection under a NATO grant.[22] As dean of the Faculty of Law at Lyon (1982–88), one of his concerns was the development of exchanges with other European and with American universities including Boston University, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Georgetown University, the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and Saint Louis University, Missouri.[23][24] He instituted seminars in foreign law conducted by visiting professors from countries including Germany, Belgium, Canada, and Israel. When in 1995 he founded the law review Justice, published by Dalloz, he included a section on judicial systems in other countries,[25] and also included such coverage in the journal Droit et procédures, where he headed the scientific committee, then the peer.[26] Two of his students have written dissertations in comparative law; he has participated in conferences on comparative law; and he contributed to a book on comparative law, now in its 7th edition.[27]

Human rights[edit]

From the beginning of his doctoral studies in 1969, Serge Guinchard became interested in fields other than trial law. Consumer protection and civil law and have more particularly attracted his attention. The common point of his research is the interdisciplinary approach of a law in perpetual motion, with an openness to other disciplines such as philosophy, sociology, and economics and with reference to other cultures and to humanism. Some of his writings are outspoken, even caustic[28][29] and cover responsibility for miscarriages of justice,[30] and his books include proposals for reform.[31] Some of these have led to changes in the law,[Note 2] while others have not.[Note 3] He has harshly criticized the function of the Court of Cassation, the French supreme court,[32] and contributed to the debate on judges' being Freemasons,[33] regularly updated his contribution to the Dalloz Encyclopedia of Civil Procedure concerning the liabilities incurred due to miscarriages of public justice, and has studied judicial actions that may constitute a threat to human rights.[34] and written on the removal of judges.[35] In his writings he focuses on the assurance of rights as it emerges from the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights or, more recently, that of the Constitutional Council on priority issues of constitutionality, particularly in the areas of criminal procedure and jurisprudebce.[36]

Consumer protection[edit]

Serge Guinchard proposed, in 1970, in a thesis for obtaining his second master 2 (Science criminal) and published in 1971,[37] a series of reforms for the purpose of improve consumer protection by transcending traditional divisions of law in which he sees an obstacle to the emergence of a genuine economic law, including: the ability to give consumers the benefit of legal actions traditionally reserved for economic agents in competition law to stop illegal practices,[38] the right to pursue collective action in defense of their combined interests affected,[39] the latter proposal made him one recognized experts in a french class action, as evidenced by the application to expose its mechanism to the joint working group "Bercy-Vendome" held in 2005 at the initiative of French President of the Republic whose report[40] inspired the bill passed by the Council of Ministers, November 8, 2006,[41] the proposal of the socialist group recorded the Senate April 25, 2006 and the report of the Commission's information on the laws of the Senate "the group action in the French law: the complete protection of consumers".[42] He was also interested in issues of misleading advertising,[43] the right of legal action for consumer associations.[44] Abroad, Article 138a, § 2 of the Belgian judicial code (in the wording of the Act of December 3, 2006) follows this reflection.[45] This field of research in law of unfair competition and consumer law will never be abandoned by Serge Guinchard who even published a contribution to the principle of loyalty, both in competition law and civil procedure, thus connecting between substantive law and procedural law.[46]

Civil law and Muslim law[edit]

Civilian training,[47] Serge Guinchard wrote, in his first edition in 1970, half of the definitions of Civil Law Glossary legal terms,[48] which he co-directs[49] and has devoted his doctoral thesis in law (defended in June 1974)The allocation of property in French private law: testing a general theory. From the etymology of the verb "affect", he showed[50] that the prefix ad to classify into two main categories in the assumptions which goods are assigned to a particular purpose: those for which a single direction, a direction is given to the property (and the allocation of premises to commercial use) and those in which the allocation is higher, by the creation of a genuine link between two goods (such as easements or common parts of a condominium that are related to the units). Their regime is moving around rules common to both categories of employment and rules specific to each of them because of the variability in the intensity of the assignment.[51] The work of Serge Guinchard on Heritage Trust have inspired the legislature to adopt the Trust into French law Article 2011[52] and the status of individual entrepreneur limited,[53] in which heritage institutions, separate from the personal assets of the Trustee or the individual entrepreneur, is assigned to a specific purpose in the deed of trust or in the founding of the proprietorship, the assets and liabilities transferred under the transaction mentioned in section 2011 of the Civil Code or the occupation of the individual entrepreneur referred to in Article L. 526-6 of the Commercial Code, form a heritage station. Serge Guinchard developed in his thesis the idea of splitting the assets, a "fighter" engaged in professional activity, the other "security", assigned to the preservation of family interests and it is this idea found in the aforementioned law of 15 June 2010 on the EIRL.[54]
To Senegal, where he was seconded as a professor at the Faculty of Law of Dakar from January 1976 to September 1980, Serge Guinchard contributed one hand, to disseminate knowledge of law Senegalese family, in his personal and financial aspects (including Islamic law of estates), and, secondly, to reform the company law of this State. As regards the right of the family, he published numerous articles and case comments, emphasizing the conflict between tradition and modernity in post-colonial society in this particular field.[55] Above all, he published the first book addressing the legal status of Muslim in this country estates.[56] In direct contact with the High judicial and political authorities of the country, he practiced what might be called a "judiciary to influence" the passage of customary law in civil law codifications based on the post-colonial as well as reflected the assumption by the Senegalese courts solutions he advocated, particularly in the application of customs in time Serer and Ouoloff Islamized on devolution matrilineal herds of cattle[Note 4] and about the coordination in the last quarter of the twentieth century, inheritance of two statutes as diverse as those from the civil law (largely taken from French law) and Islamic law from,[57] in a country with strong traditions and customary Islamized where Islam is the religion of almost the entire population.[58] Regarding company law, Serge Guinchard participated in the preparation of the draft Code of civil and commercial companies of Senegal,[59] became the fourth part of the Code of Obligations, after its adoption by Senegal's National Assembly, he advocated that Senegalese law incorporates the French model of corporate law, but also the Anglo-Saxon, in the hope of attracting investors tradition of common law.[Note 5] In both areas, he always taught these disciplines, along with teaching insurance law and its research activities and "jurislator".[60]

Justice and law trial[edit]

On this field, an author, Bertrand Lissarague, called it a "lord of the proceedings" in the liber amicorum that were offered in May 2007.[61] These two themes are now over thirty years, the field of research favored by Serge Guinchard.[62] His approach consisted of first, conventionally, from the study (technical) of Justice and its institutions,[63] Civil Procedure[64] and execution means.[65] But his willingness to explore new horizons that French civil law and the civil law[66] took him very quickly, to go beyond: it not only explored the other traditional litigation (criminal and administrative procedures with the publication, mentioned earlier, in February 2000 of a book of Criminal Procedure (in collaboration with Jacques Buisson), but mainly it globalize the study of law and justice of the trial, in that it comes out of its procedural law ghetto technique to show that it is attractive to guarantee fundamental rights and that it is itself the guarantee of the rights guaranteed through the notion of a fair trial. In this regard, Serge Guinchard studied a right of trial humanist, beyond the procedural technique, based on human rights.[67] It deepened the study of law to a fair trial, including its precise Dalloz processual law, fundamental rights of the trial and saw the procedural law of the law guaranteeing the rights procedural citizens, in terms of the European Convention on Human Rights and the French Constitution.[68]

The globalization of the right of trial[edit]

Globalization means the right of trial here, as has been said, the willingness of law out of its ghetto procedural technique to show that it is attractive to guarantee fundamental rights and that itself is the guarantee of the rights guaranteed through the notion of a fair trial. This globalization is illustrated by the four developments to which it gave rise:

  • Globalization as meaning the first law of the trial is viewed and practiced in all its technical dimensions, regardless of the type of litigation. Author or co-author of four books of Civil Procedure[69] and enforcement procedures[70] and a book of Criminal Procedure,[71] all still reprinted, some each years:[72] and two codes of civil procedure, one annotated 1986 to 1996,[73] another commented, in 1999 and 2001.[74] He also practiced all financial and administrative litigation (Regional Chambers of Accounts and Audit Court) when he was in charge of legal and judicial affairs for Mayor of Lyon and the urban community of this town, as that assistant vice-president of both communities (the litigation was within its two delegations of functions).[75][76]
  • Globalization even in the sense that before or alongside the trial, we found alternative dispute resolution (Alternative dispute resolution or ADR) and arbitration, which are the subject of significant developments in the works of Serge Guinchard of judicial institutions and civil procedure,[77] and has integrated, in October 1991, he created the curriculum for Panthéon-Assas University, as a graduate diploma (today master 2 professional) in litigation and arbitration, alternative dispute resolution.[3] Serge Guinchard insisted, in 1996, during a conference in Nice on 30 and 31 October 1996,[78] on the importance taken by these means in the regulation of conflicts, but also their proceduralisation by the rules of fair trial.[79] Ten years later, he advocated the extension of alternative dispute resolution in the report of the commission he chaired in 2008 on the reorganization of litigation and diversion,[80] following the filing of this report conciliation and mediation have been reinforced by decrees n° 2010-1165, 1 October 2010 and n° 2010-1395, 12 November 2010 who returned the all of its proposals, in addition, Law n° 2010-1609 of 22 December 2010 introduced into French law[81] a participatory process of negotiation assisted by counsel, the same one that Serge Guinchard had recommended in its proposal n° 47.
  • Globalization, third, the exploration of social sciences other than strictly legal: anthropology,[82] history,[83] sociology,[84] philosophy,[85] literature, economics of justice.,[86] etc.., not to mention the contributions of foreign rights.[87] Thus, Serge Guinchard created in October 1995 in conjunction with the founding of the review Justice, Dalloz ed., a postgraduate diploma (DEA, today master 2 search) Justice and the Law trial at Panthéon-Assas University, curriculum in which the study of procedural law is no longer to compare the three major administrative litigation, civil and punitive, but to transcend all disputes, including those of disciplinary bodies and regulatory authorities, under the light of other social sciences and drawing on international instruments protecting human rights and comparative law (a seminar was devoted to "Justices of the World" and entrusted to foreign lawyers: Shlomo Levin, vice president of the Israeli Supreme Court, Michel Bastarache, Judge at the Supreme Court of Canada, Jacques Van Compernolle, Professor at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve, etc.). Seminars legal anthropology, sociology of justice, philosophy of law the trial, history and economy of justice, Justice in the literature of the great French and foreign classics, even in film, staked the diploma program.
  • Globalization, Fourth, it is to anchor the study of law and justice trial in fundamental rights.[88] In his book Proessual law/Human rights tria, Serge Guinchard designs procedural law (unlike Henry Visioz[89] Henri Motulsky and some contemporary writers), not as a comparison of litigation in the immutable purity of their technical rules, but as the law tries to forge a link between everyone from common rules,[90] which is found exposed in particular the jurisprudence of the Committee of Human Rights of the UN (on the basis of Article 14 of International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights), the European Court of Human Rights (from Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms) and the Constitutional Council (whose jurisprudence is increasingly important with the priority issue of constitutionality). And this link for more than 800 million Europeans under the Council of Europe.[91] Serge Guinchard has become, through his writings, one of the leading specialists of the Covenant in New York Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 19 December 1966[92] of the European Convention on Human Rights[93] of the constitutional law[94] and especially the fair trial guarantees which are derived from these texts and jurisprudence and is likely to him that we must, both written, the changing face of procedural law, the transition from procedural legalism to humanism procedural.

From procedural legalism to humanism processual[edit]

In the writings of Serge Guinchard, processual law is no longer the law that reflect their procedural discipline by scrutinizing their procedural aspects of a purely technical, but the right of those interested in the common sources of inspiration for all litigation, their foundations, principles of natural law that are necessary in the conduct of all trials.[95] This doctrine, that Serge Guinchard colleagues have termed "humanism processual" in the title of the book they gave him in May 2010,[96] is playing an increasing role in construction, day to day warranty the guarantee of rights. It helps to bring out key principles that the contours of the procedural democracy of tomorrow.
a) Serge Guinchard tried to highlight what he called the triptych's right to a fair trial in his writings above, including the book Dalloz processual law: the right to a judge,[97] including the effectiveness of this right by the removal of all barriers to financial and legal,[98] the right to a good judge, with institutional guarantees: unity or duality of the courts; unit or collegiate courts,[99] a higher court,[100] independence and impartiality of the judge;[101] secular courts,[102] a language understood by litigants, and also by procedural guarantees, with a public procedure, fast[103] and equitable within the meaning of the requirement of reasoned decision,[104] the principles of equality of arms and the principle of contradiction,[105] the right to carry out the judge's decision.[106]
b) Serge Guinchard has advanced the idea as early as 1999,[107] that three structuring principles are emerging behind the guidelines currently being held in each type of litigation, the principles that meet new needs, as expressed by litigants and citizens.
-Needof confidence in the institution of justice and respect for others, where a principle (structuring) of loyalty,[108] particularly in the search for evidence;
-A need tolisten to the Other, whether the parties or the judge or of others, where a principle (structuring) of dialogue between parties and between them and J.;[109]
-A need for closenesslast, but not necessarily in space, time taken to traverse a distance a substitute for geographical proximity, resulting in principle, also structuring, speed.[110]
These are the guiding principles of tomorrow, emerging principles, which means they are not yet accepted by all.[111] They structure all litigation and should be "put in letters of gold pediments courthouse".[112] They reflect the advent of a procedural democracy.[113]
c) Finally, Serge Guinchard has yet tried to show that we have entered a new era of exceeding pure technical procedural issues, not because they would become useless, but because they need to be revisited the light of globalization[114] (which induces an attraction of civil procedure to guarantee fundamental rights) and in the light of a model law of the trial (the rules of fair trial are now the model of a right joint trial). Simple technique of organizing civil lawsuit (as the company is a technical organization of the company, among others), the procedure has become an instrument for measuring the effectiveness of democracy in our country[115] As the European Court of Human Rights is closely monitoring.[116]

Chairman Lyon-Auto Park (1989–1995) - His policy of Contemporary Art in public car parks[edit]

Between 1989 and 1995, the city of Lyon began the construction of 8,000 parking spaces downtown, through the company Lyon-Parc-Auto, including Serge Guinchard was president at the same time.[136][137][138][139] Under his leadership, a true cultural policy was implemented to incorporate works of art in these car parks, to organize a museum and an original rating.[137] Georges Verney-Carron recounts the role of Serge Guinchard in this operation: the history of parks in Lyon has been an upheaval in 1990 following a challenge by Serge Guinchard. Everything in life begins with Yes. Yes the acceptance, openness, dynamics. Yes the command. And Serge Guinchard, we must pay tribute to him, said yes to contemporary. Do not forget that art would not exist without order, without public clients or private feel it necessary to give meaning by appealing to artists. What started it all, these are the first drawings of Jean-Michel Wilmotte for the Celestins Park. Serge Guinchard was stunned by their quality. It was the first time a car was referring to the context - in this case an italian theater. We have therefore relied on the creation, integrated designer, Yan Pennor's for the graphic identity and signage Lyon Parc Auto and contemporary artists associated with the design teams.[137] In the same book, François Gindre said that "it was during a dinner that Georges Verney-Carron convinced Serge Guinchard, eminent jurist, exceptional brain, quite atypical, but which does was not really a culture in contemporary art, that artists alone are not sufficient to change the image of parks and they had to design not as warehouses, but as public spaces in its own right. Basically, the order after dinner was up multidisciplinary teams architects-artists-designers to create a new generation of parks ".[140] From the observation of Serge Guinchard during this dinner that almost all the proposed future parking were placed in front of a monument in Lyon (see the museum and the Saint-Pierre Hotel de Ville) or on a cultural site (see the place of Celestins) or history (see the old school health Lyon) and his request that we be creative and we're trying to leverage this fact arose the proposal of Mr. Georges Verney-Carron mount a triple operation art:[137]

  • First, systematic integration of an original work of art, a contemporary artist, in every park and in association with the architect from the design of the book and it was agreed that all artists would be selected through competition, without any involvement of elected officials, which was strictly observed;[137]
  • Second, the combination of Jean-Michel Vilmotte as "architect of light",[Note 7] for all the parks, the architect selected (by competition) to construct the park;[137]
  • Thirdly, was chosen for the sign, Mr. Yann's Pennor it is to him that we owe the yellow and black instead of the traditional red and white, both outside of parks for report, and inside to guide motorists and this color choice has since been copied by other manufacturers to car parks, both in and outside of Lyon, notably in Paris and was made after a survey of motorists Lyon has revealed that these two colors, which are also of Grand Prix Formula 1, mostly in the responses returned.[137] Six parks became the subject of this ambitious policy which was set design by Jean-Michel Wilmotte and signage Yan D. Pennor: Place de la République" (Republic Square) with an artist François Morellet (The fortunes of the Republic);[Note 8] "Place des Terreaux" (Terreaux square), with the New York artist Matt Mullican (Untitled );[Note 9] "Place des Célestins" (Celestins square) with Daniel Buren (Upside-Below);[Note 10] the park said "Croix-Rousse (Red Cross)", with Michel Verjux (One-level and sub ground); the park in Berthelot avenue,[Note 11] with the young Israeli artist living in Lyon since 1982, Dror Endeweld (unnamed, countless units from January to December and from - 2 to 10;[Note 12] the railway station "La Part-Dieu", with Joseph Kosuth (The Adventures of Odysseus underground).[Note 13] The artistic policy initiated by Serge Guinchard was pursued by the presidents who succeeded him. She has earned the city to get a first international award in Vienna (Austria) in 1995.[137]
