Examples of Parlement

If these claims were substantiated, the royal will would be subjected to revision by the parlement of Paris.
That of Paris, being the most eminent, had, in course of time, secured to itself the right of registering royal decrees-that is, of receiving the king's edicts in formal fashion and entering them upon the statute books so that the law of the land might be known generally.
From making such a claim, it was only a step for the parlement of Paris to refuse to register certain new edicts on the ground that the king was not well informed or that they were in conflict with older and more binding enactments.
To prevent their substantiation, both Louis XIII and Louis XIV held "beds of justice"-that is, appeared in person before the parlement, and from their seat of cushions and pillows declared their will regarding the new edict and directed that it be promulgated.
