The Cour de cassation (Court of cassation) is the highest court in the French judiciary. Sitting in the historic law courts of Paris on the Île de la Cité (center of Paris), this institution has a key role: unifying and monitoring the interpretation of law. The Court thus ensures everyone equal treatment before the judge. As its decisions establish the main legal principles that structure our society and concern many aspects of our daily lives, the Cour de cassation plays an essential role in the functioning of democracy.
