Abstract

The author provides context to the readers of the six papers featured in this issue of the Review of Central and East European Law, which examine elements of the new Civil Code of the Russian Federation from foreign and comparative law perspectives. A brief history of the milestones in Quebec and Russian experiences in private law codifi cation is supplemented with a narrative describing the lead role played in the latter by the Private Law Research Center in Moscow, and the support role played by, among others, the McGill University Faculty of Law.
