Examining some of the main ways legal systems can support and maintain judicial independence, a vital element of the rule of law, this project considers the approach of Latin American jurisdictions (such as Guatemala, Costa Rica and Argentina) in light of international principles.
The project was funded by Dentons Muñoz who provide corporate legal services across multiple industries throughout Central America, José Antonio Muñoz, founder and managing partner of Dentons Muñoz; as well as Deloitte; and Cuestamoras.
