“Law in Times of Internationalization”
Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico, Facultad de Derecho and Universidad de La Habana envisioned a two-way collaborative exchange that will enable graduate students in the legal profession to learn, experience, and compare two completely different legal systems. The proposed program will integrate master’s level (LLM) law students from Puerto Rico (UIAPR) and graduate students from the Universidad de Habana in the teaching-learning experience of the legal systems of both countries from a comparative perspective. Students will be taking courses in Puerto Rico and in Cuba to obtain knowledge and understanding of the legal context of each country, placing emphasis in litigation and alternative dispute resolution, and also share the fundamental concepts of their judicial systems.
