Société civile - lexique juridique
You will find below a glossary of key terms used in this website :
A company will be civil each time that it cannot be given another legal classification, notably commercial. The domain of civil companies is therefore vast. They notably cover agriculture, intellectual professions, property, and liberal professions. It is however necessary to make a restriction for which provision is made by law: even if a company operates civil activities, it is a commercial entity if it adopts a commercial form (limited company, simplified joint stock company, private limited company).● Back to the letter : "C"
