Mexican Law for the American Lawyer
Jorge A. Vargas
Carolina Academic Press, 2009 - Law - 661 pages
Three special features make this book unique in many respects. First, the book has been written by an eminent group of Mexican practitioners and academicians recognized in Mexico for their legal expertise. These are attorneys working for prestigious law firms in Mexico who wrote their chapters having in mind the professional interest of American lawyers. Second, each of its seventeen chapters discusses a Mexican legal area commonly found in decisions rendered by state or federal courts in our country. These areas include personal injury, contracts, Fideicomisos, real estate, companies, Maquiladoras, promissory notes, family law, conflict of laws, letters rogatory, enforcement of judgments, etc. And third, most chapters include a legal glossary, a specialized bibliography and samples of practical Mexican legal documents. The book is current, well-written and has been prepared for the practical benefit of legal practitioners, judges and government officials who handle legal matters involving Mexican law, including business and law students. Mexican Law for the American Lawyer has been edited and co-authored by Prof. Jorge A. Vargas, a prolific author on Mexican law from the University of San Diego School of Law.
