César Campinchi-1932

César Campinchi (4 May 1882, Calcatoggio, Corse-du-Sud – 22 February 1941, Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhône) was a lawyer and French statesman in the beginning of the 20th century.

Campinchi was president of the Association générale des étudiants de Paris student organisation, a member of the Radical Socialist Party and deputy for Corsica from 1932 to 1940. He carried out the functions of the Keeper of the seals and presented the Campinchi proposal concerning the protection of minors in 1937.

He married Hélène, who was the daughter of Adolphe Landry and also a lawyer. Given her brief by François de Menthon, Hélène chaired the commission which oversaw the drafting of the 2 February 1945 relating to delinquent children, which also established her husband's proposal.

Gaston Monnerville was one of Campinchi's close colleagues.
