French term or phrase: loi d'autonomie
again about French treatment of a US trust: "l'acte (de trust) constituait essentiellement un contrat synallagmatique (...) ne relevant donc pas de la loi succesorale mais de la loi d'autonomie, c'est à dire de la loi sous l'empire de laquelle les parties ont entendu se placer."

law of the contract
Explanation:
See definition of 'loi d'autonomie' in Cornu (subentry under "autonomie"). That's the same as the "law of the contract" in English-- the law the parties have chosen to govern the contract (normally in the choice of law clause) or the law governing the contract by virtue of where the parties signed it, or wished to have it performed.
