Conference Examines Rule of Law and the Drug Trade in Mexico

Emory Law’s Center for Advocacy and Dispute Resolution and the Institute for Developing Nations is hosting “Rule of Law Reform and the Drug Trade: Challenges and Implications in Mexico and the United States” on Sept. 29-Oct. 1. The conference will examine the issues facing rule of law development in Mexico and the United States in light of drug cartels and related corruption.

The conference brings together Mexican and U.S. law schools that have received grants from United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to work on rule of law development in Mexico. Panelists also include U.S. and Mexican judges and lawyers who are involved in the implementation of the legal reforms and changes in policy toward drug cartels. Funding for the conference is provided by USAID and Higher Education for Development.

A complete schedule can be found here. Sessions in Tull Auditorium are open to the public; all other sessions are open to the Emory community and invited guests. Meals are for invited guests only.
