This casebook uniquely compares the law of Latin America to that of Europe, as well as the United States while introducing students to the richness and diversity of the Latin American legal tradition through cases, legal documents, and commentaries. This carefully designed book allows students to see the law in action and guides them through entire judicial decisions, demonstrating how litigation unfolds and how a different legal culture operates. It is currently the only cases and materials publication devoted to Latin American law and the issues that arise in concrete litigation south of the border.
