Mendoza, December 6, 2018

The National Judicial Offices Institute is a non-profit civil association that brings together all civil and criminal judicial offices in Argentina. It was created at the end of the II National Meeting of Judicial Offices, which was held in Mendoza Province and organized by the Mendoza Province government, the Supreme Court, the Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA), the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office and the Collegiate Criminal Chamber of the Mendoza Province Supreme Court. The event was co-organized by the Institute for Comparative Studies in the Criminal and Social Sciences, the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, and the Mendoza Province Magistrates’ Association and Bar Association (First District).

The mission of the entity is ‘to contribute to the professional development and specialization of administrative assistance agencies that support the work of judges, which were created through procedure reforms and seek to separate administrative and jurisdictional functions and introduce oral, public and contradictory hearings as the main mechanism for making judicial decisions.’ To that end, it ‘seeks to create a space for dialogue, training and dissemination of information at the national and regional levels related to the work of judicial offices. It also seeks to share the problems and solutions that emerge through its work, coordinate actions to solve new challenges, foster the efficiency of resource management and increase management quality, all with the main goal of guaranteeing all people access to justice and transparency in judicial responses.’

The founding members of the entity are Alberto Binder, Leonel González Postigo, Marco Fandiño Castro, Guillermo Cosentino, Teresa Day de Pontis Mariana Silvestri, José Valerio, Angela E. Ledesma and Claudia Sbdar. The Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA), the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies (IAED), the Institute for Comparative Studies in the Criminal and Social Sciences (INECIP) and Unidos por la Justicia form the institutional advisory committee.

The Board of Directors was formed immediately in keeping with the law. It is composed of María Luisa Squetino (President), Rodolfo Daniel Barroso (Vice President), Daniel Herrera (Secretary), and Juan Manuel Tartaglia (Treasurer). The Deputy Member and Alternate are Juan Pablo Beltramone and Paola Celeste Falco, respectively. The Accounts Review Committee is comprised of Mariela Roxana Scagliotti (Deputy Member) and Julia Amarilla Páez (Alternate).
