Latin American Law Interest Group

The Latin American Law Interest Group of the FCIL-SIS serves as a forum for the exchange of information related to the legal regimes of Latin American countries. Latin America, in this case, refers to the geographic area encompassing Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. The Latin American Law Interest Group traditionally meets at the AALL Annual Meeting, and is led by the Chair, who generally serves a two-year term. All are welcome! We encourage you to join the FCIL-SIS Latin American Law IG Discussion Group in My Communities and become part of our ongoing conversation. If you are unable to attend the annual meeting or if you have any questions about this group, its mission, or how to join, you may also reach out to the interest group chair for additional information.
