Our scope of work We proudly accomplished the goal of introducting a new research line, consolidated in 2015 with the Human Rights Program. We identified that the vast majority of Law programs do not have the content, materials, and trained faculty to prepare future lawyers under the new paradigm that raises the constitutional reform on human rights. 12 :: Members of the working group.

15 Goals Informe Anual 2015 We aim to contribute to the universities efforts in training future lawyers in accordance to the 2011 reform.

It is essential that Law Schools promote quality education to forge future professionals with comprehensive capacities and human awareness. 3. Training programs on human rights for Law School professors. Member of the working group. This program will be funded primarily by the European Union. 13
