Posted on 26/09/2018

Professor Bénédicte Fauvarque-Cosson, a graduate of the King’s-Sorbonne Anglo-French LLB programme has recently been appointed to the Conseil d’État in France.

Professor Fauvarque-Cosson graduated from the programme in 1988 and is a Professor of Law at Paris II Assas, The Dickson Poon School of Law’s current partner on the Anglo-French programme. More information on her career, appointments and publications can be found here.

The Conseil d’État is France’s highest administrative court, judging on cases relating to executive power, local authorities, and any agency invested with public authority. The Conseil advises the French government on legal issues.

Professor Fauvarque-Cosson is also an active member of the Association des Juristes Panthéon-King’s (AJPK) which is the student and alumni association of the Anglo-French programme. Last year the AJPK celebrated its 40th anniversary.

On behalf of King’s, Professor Gillian Douglas, Executive Dean of the School, expressed her congratulations to Professor Fauvarque-Cosson: “We are delighted by Bénédicte’s nomination to the Conseil d’État. As an alumna, she has been a great friend to the School of Law and to generations of graduates from our Anglo-French programme.”
