As part of the project “Improving Access to Civil Justice in Latin America” financed by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), the Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA) selected two attorneys to take part in the third year of research internships at Osgoode Law School (York University, Toronto, Canada), which will run Monday, March 4 through Friday, March 15, 2019.

The interns will be Amanda Gutiérrez of Argentina, who submitted a research proposal entitled “The family rights of detained persons in Argentina,” and Larissa Pochmann da Silva of Brazil, who submitted a research proposal on “Transnational class actions.”

The purpose of the internship is to support civil procedure reform processes in countries in Latin America and the Caribbean by offering professionals the opportunity to travel to Toronto, Canada to develop a research project on a topic of their choosing and to collaborate on and participate in activities at the law school and acquire knowledge that is relevant to their local realities.

Each applicant was to submit a research proposal on a topic of their choice related to access to justice in the civil justice system. The application included a description of the topic, justification for the project and a research methodology design.

All proposals were to include a gender perspective, use non-sexist or equal language, avoid reproducing gender stereotypes, and mainstream gender.
