Since 2013, ABA ROLI has supported Mexico’s transition from an inquisitorial, written-based system to an accusatorial system through our program, New Advocates for Mexican Justice. To assist the country’s transition, ABA ROLI works with Mexican law schools to prepare the next generation of Mexican attorneys for practice in the accusatorial trial context. To further the capacity of the students and faculty in Mexico’s law schools, ABA ROLI collaborates with the institutions to develop the student’s litigation, mediation, and restorative justice skills. The partnership also involves tailoring instructors’ legal education teaching methods to mirror the accusatorial trial system. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
