About the Committee

The Mexico Committee grows its membership through attraction, rather than promotion. It is a vibrant committee that actively sponsors programs, interactive discussion, and sound policy on developments in Mexican, US, and other foreign law relevant to its members and the country. The comprehensive primary practice areas of our members include: foreign investment, corporate, M&A, dispute resolution, energy and natural resources, real estate, antitrust, criminal, rule of law, Immigraton, human rights, tourism, international trade, tax, data privacy and many others. The Committee, anchored by eight City Coordinators located across Mexico and the US and the recently incorporated San Diego-Tijuana City Chapter, contributes to the annual year in review publication and publishes a quarterly newsletter in partnership with leading Mexican law faculty.


More Information



An important aspect of the Section of International Law is its role in commenting on proposed laws of foreign jurisdictions. Most recently, the Section of International collaborated with the Section of Antitrust Law to comment on proposed regulatory provisions implementing the Mexican Federal Competition Law in response to a request from Mexican Competition Commission.
