The Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) organized the first stage of the Litigation Program for Argentina’s Federal Procedure Reform in Salta. The program ran November 26 through November 29.

The program faculty included Ximena Chong, the Assistant Chief Prosecutor in the High Complexity Crimes Office for the Center-North Metropolitan Region Prosecutor’s Office; Andrea Quintero, an attorney from the Research Unit in the Metropolitan North Regional Public Defender’s Office; and the Honorable Verónica Sepúlveda, who serves on the 13th Guarantee Court of Santiago de Chile. The training team also included JSCA researchers Laura Cora and Juan José Martínez.

The first stage of the program focused on pretrial hearings. Workshops on litigation and strategies for the adversarial criminal justice system were offered based on case studies, litigation practice and role-playing on hearing management, as well as mock hearings.

This free program is intended to strengthen the oral hearing management capacities of judges and the oral litigation skills of prosecutors and public defenders from Salta who work in federal or provincial justice.
