Since 2010, ABA ROLI has supported Mexico’s transition from an inquisitorial, written-based criminal justice system to an accusatorial system and supported the expansion of labor rights in the country through our programs. To assist the country’s judicial transition, ABA ROLI works with Mexican law schools to prepare the next generation of Mexican attorneys for practice in the accusatorial trial context; as well as partnering with these institutions to develop students' skills in litigation, mediation, and restorative justice. Additionally, ABA ROLI aims to expand labor rights in Mexico by improving the capacity of labor justice institutions to give legal advice and representation to labor prosecutors and public defenders. These programs are funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs and the Government of Canada’s Labour Funding Program.
