The Mexico Committee seeks to grow its members involvement in dialog on current and potential developments of Mexican, United States and other law relevant to their practice of law and to the establishment of sound policy. Current substantive focuses of the committee's work include arbitration, antitrust law, criminal procedure reform, data privacy, legal education and trade law. The Committee contributes to the annual year in review publication, is developing its newsletter in partnership with a leading Mexican law faculty, maintains its website, and actively organizes programs at the spring and fall meetings of the International Law Section.
The Mexico Committee's membership is its most important asset. We encourage all Committee members to be involved in Committee activities and to freely communicate their suggestions and ideas.
For a taste of current and emerging issues of developments in Mexican law, consult the Committee's newsletters posted on this page, particularly the February 2010 issue featuring a dialog on Mexico's launch of implementation of the constitutional reform of criminal procedure, and the April 2011 and August 2011 issues that address a range of issues, including developments in Mexican antitrust law and regulation, the significance of agrarian property in Mexico, commercial law reform, Mexico's perspective on global warming, the framework for arbitration practice involving Mexico, and much more.
