ABSTRACT: This article recounts the history of the École Libre school in France from 1941-1946. It was said that organizationally, the École Libre was somewhat of a hybrid. In keeping with the Parisian École des Hautes Études model, the programs were drawn up with a certain flexibility, by the professors themselves, rather than in accordance with ministerial prescriptions, as in the extremely centralized university system. The faculty of letters was headed by the Sorbonne's Gustave Cohen, with the Belgian Henri Grégoire as vice dean and the faculty of law and political science was headed by Belgian Paul Van Zeeland, with Boris Mirkine-Guetzévitch, representing France, as vice dean.
