Summary

Weakness points out to the lack of force or vitality, to fragility, sickness, failure or absence of solidity, psychological disability, deprivation, shortage, imperfection, lack of authority, of power or of force, or something which is unimportant or scarce. Yet, legal dictionaries often lead to synonyms like vulnerability and incompetence without actually defining the term “weakness”. Even scarcer are the examples in which the French legal corpus itself makes use of the exact term weakness or the adjective weak. Deprived of definition and general framework, very often looked down upon, weakness, nevertheless, inspires nevertheless lawyers. The relevance of the chosen topic lies precisely within this multiplicity of interpretations.

Argument

Weakness points out to the lack of force or vitality, to fragility, sickness, failure or absence of solidity, psychological disability, deprivation, shortage, imperfection, lack of authority, of power or of force, or something which is unimportant or scarce. Yet, legal dictionaries often lead to synonyms like vulnerability and incompetence without actually defining the term “weakness”. Even scarcer are the examples in which the French legal corpus itself makes use of the exact term weakness or the adjective weak. Deprived of definition and general framework, very often looked down upon, weakness, nevertheless, inspires nevertheless lawyers. The relevance of the chosen topic lies precisely within this multiplicity of interpretations. Indeed, the polysemous dimension of weakness is as important as the cases in which the law makes use of it. The colloquium has furthermore the ambition to question the coherence of the law in its perception of weakness throughout the different areas of law. This question constitutes the common thread of this study as a whole: a critical analysis of the weakness in law could reveal gaps, faults and the inefficiency of the law. Intituled “Weakness in Law”, this colloquium gives an opportunity to PhD candidates and young Doctors to give a presentation and thus to promote their work or their research subject.
