system. We will start by looking at the principle of good faith and one of its most controversial derivations, the prohibition of abuse of rights to then look at the principle of non-retroactivity of the law. We will close the block by studying the principle of res judicata and the principle of lis alibi pendens in the attempt to understand the interaction between different courts and tribunals. During our ﬁnal sessions, we will contextualize the general principles looked at earlier and look at their application in the main different legal families. Our focus here will be on identifying the differences and similarities in the reception of these legal principles, as reﬂection of the particularities of each legal tradition. Required reading : L.
