Trials whose goal is to settle conflicts and restore social peace go together with a ritual, the legal ritual which is part of the universal symbolism of the act of judging beyond the differences in legal systems observed between the French-speaking countries and those regulated by « common law ».

Trials have their own customs, temples, spaces, temporalities, actors and costumes. Justice can be staged thanks to its own rituals too. Sentencing generates discourses, narratives and representations of different kinds such as court reportings, literary, theatrical or film works. Those discourses (narratives and representations) will be highlighted in our symposium: researchers from various disciplines (law, literature, history, sociology, cinema, journalism…) will contribute to this multi-disciplinary scientific and multi-cultural event which will address the theme of court reporting and fictionalizing trials from French-speaking and English-speaking perspectives.
