Message From The Co-Chairs



On behalf of our leadership team, welcome to the Committee homepage of the Latin American & Caribbean Committee!

We hope that you will find the content of this page useful. It includes past editions of our newsletters, program materials from past Committee programs, Year-in-Review articles and references to websites which we consider useful and practical for our daily work in Latin American & Caribbean countries.

If you are not a member of the Section of International Law yet, we strongly encourage you to join. There is no need to be a U.S.-qualified lawyer. More than 10% of the Section members are lawyers licensed to practice in jurisdictions other than the United States. If you are already a member of the Section but you are not a member of the Latin American & Caribbean Committee, please consider joining.

The Committee focuses on the most diverse relevant issues that are present in the everyday legal-life of lawyers, judges, regulators and legislators practicing and working in or with Latin America & Caribbean countries, providing them an updated source of information and a unique opportunity for networking with other colleagues.

Members of the committee truly have the opportunity to help set the committee's direction, focus and agenda. We welcome all those who practice in this field or are otherwise interested in what is one of the most important emerging marketplaces for the practice of law and the development of business in the world. If you wish to join the committee, sign up online using the link to the right.Practitioners, judges, regulators and legislators in many countries will find a very active forum to become acquainted with and knowledgeable about the latest legal developments in the countries of the Latin American & Caribbean Region. The committee will provide a unique forum for examining and discussing these issues from diverse standpoints (e.g. law practice, business-oriented, comparative approach, legislative and regulatory), on a country-specific, regional, global and always issue-focused basis.

We are available to address any questions you may have or to discuss with you any aspect of the committee that you may deem necessary. Please, feel free to contact either of the Co-Chairs. We look forward to working with you in the development, growth and work of the Committee.
