The Latin American Law Interest Group functions under the auspices of the FCIL-SIS. The primary purpose of the Group is to serve 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.
Current activities include:
- A weekly email of current events in the Americas to help keep abreast of legal developments and forthcoming publications of interest (if you would like to join our weekly email updates, please send a note to our Chair, Julienne Grant).
- A collaborative guide to legal research in Mexico which was unveiled at the Mexican Law Program at the AALL Annual Meeting in San Antonio (2013).
- We have a long-standing database of Latin American Law Journals and Serials holdings.
- We have a table of Latin American vendors that is updated periodically.
The Latin American Law Interest Group traditionally meets at the AALL Annual Meeting, and is led by a Chair. All are welcome! The Group’s Chair, who generally serves a two-year term, is confirmed by the Executive Committee of the FCIL-SIS.
