In this article, the author examines the jurisdictional problems encountered by a party attempting to enforce a foreign judgment in France against a French national or domiciliary. The author's application of the French law to a hypothetical case demonstrates that as a general rule, foreign judgments rendered against French nationals or domiciliaries by non-Common Market jurisdictions will not be enforceable in France.
