Abstract

Rare are the French Legislative reforms that have so abundantly drawn from foreign codified sources of law or model law proposals as that of extinctive prescription. The new French law can thus only be understood with a knowledge of these sources. It is possible to see in these sources, as well as in the Praetorian and doctrinal interpretation that they generated, a kind of anticipated comment of the new French law. The comparative method will also highlight the important differences that remain between the laws examined, despite the circulation of models and crossed fertilizations. The present study concentrates on three pillars of the new law of extinctive prescription : the duration of the prescriptive period, the commencement and the long-stop period. Reflections on the goals and justifications of the institution are also developed.
