YLS Seminar on the History of Latin American Law

On Wednesday, February 14, 2024, from 2:00 - 6:00 PM, in Room 124 of the Yale Law School, YLS’s Schell Center for International Human Rights and the Max Planck Institute for Legal History and Legal Theory is sponsoring a symposium, History of Latin American Law:

The event aims to present and discuss the book [The Cambridge History of] Latin American Law in Global Perspective recently published by Cambridge University Press. The book, edited by Tamar Herzog and Thomas Duve, brings together sixteen articles written by scholars from Latin America, Europe, and the United States on the history of Latin American law. The event will be structured around two panels. In the first one, panelists will examine the theoretical and methodological commitments of the book. In the second one, panelists will analyze three topics that cut across the volume: cultural minorities, legal pluralism, and the relationship between law and State.
Here is the program.  Space is limited.  Registration is required.
