New Institute on Law in Latin America and Related Civil Jurisdictions to Hold Conference in Madrid Nov. 11

Posted by Alan Childress

A prof of the law school of Monterrey Tech, Carlos Gabuardi (who is also a Tulane law grad with a PhD from us in comparative law), shown below with a hopefully wise Latina Justice, passes along this announcement of a relatively new Center and its second program to be held Nov. 11, 2009, in Spain.  Congrats, Carlos, and much success as the Director.  Here is an intro.

The Center for Legal Innovation, Development and Research for Latin America has been established thanks to the generous support of the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (Monterrey Tech), through the Cátedra Eduardo A. Elizondo, and  the Spanish law firm Garrigues to the purpose of having a forum for discussing those issues that may have legal relevance for the Latin American region.

There are three concrete and interrelated actions, which are being implemented to this Object001 purpose:

     1.    Selecting 100 legal minds of the utmost prestige throughout Ibero-America, Haiti and Quebec (the Group of the 100).  This group of jurists shall be the heart of the Center for Legal Innovation, Development and Research for Latin America.

     2.    Establishing a web-based forum based upon an Internet portal with State of the Art technology for the permanent discussion of the initiatives generated within the forum by the Group of the 100.

     3.    Having an annual meeting of the Group of the 100 of the Garrigues – Monterrey Tech Center for Innovation, Development and Research for Latin America.

Further info on the Center is linked here in a Word document:  Download CENTER - 2009 doc.  And on attending the program in Madrid, just ask Carlos.  Contact info for Carlos Gabuardi is at this link, and his bio is here.
