UCLA School of Law’s Transnational Program on Criminal Justice hosted a group of delegates from Mexico on June 15, 2018, including deans and professors from the law schools of two of Mexico’s largest public universities, the University of Guadalajara and the University of Nueva León.

The 11-person delegation met with UCLA School of Law Dean Jennifer Mnookin and Rúben Hernández-León, professor of Sociology and director of the UCLA Center for Mexican Studies; learned about UCLA School of Law’s LL.M. program, and heard from UCLA Law scholars Máximo Langer, Peter Reich and Laura Gómez on topics related to Latin American criminal justice reforms and the U.S. criminal justice system.

In hosting the delegation, the Transnational Program on Criminal Justice continues to advance its goals of creating bridges and mutual understanding between lawyers and legal institutions from different jurisdictions and of supporting reform efforts to improve the performance of criminal justice systems around the world.

The delegation’s visit was organized by the University of San Diego Justice-in-Mexico Center.
