French cooperative law is solid but extremely diverse. It results from its historical development, characterized by ambivalent relations between cooperative organizations and the State. Its main feature is a high emphasis on legislation dedicated to specific cooperatives and, therefore, the difficulty to present common solutions. Its second characteristic is the strength of the link, even though it can be conflicting, between cooperative law and company law.
