In the context 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) has selected two attorneys for the fourth edition of the research internship at Osgoode Law School (York University, Toronto, Canada), to be held March 2-13, 2020.


The attorneys who have been selected are Florencia Soledad Ratti Medaña of Argentina, who submitted the research proposal “Judicial Precedent in Canada as a Point of Departure for Its Analysis in Latin America,” and Santiago Miguel Pereira Campos of Uruguay, who will research “The Role of Judges, Parties and Attorneys in Efficient Civil Dispute Resolution in Canada as a Way of Strengthening the Right to Access to Justice (with a focus on Quebec’s new Civil Procedure Code).”

The purpose of the internship is to support the civil procedure reform processes of Latin American and Caribbean countries by providing professionals an opportunity to travel to Toronto, Canada to conduct research on a topic of their choice. Participants also work with colleagues and participate in activities at the host institution, and acquire knowledge that is relevant to their local realities.

Applicants are required to submit a research proposal on any topic related to access to justice in the civil justice system. The proposal must include a description of the topic, a justification and a research methodology.

All proposals must include a gender focus, which involves using non-sexist language, moving away from gender stereotypes, and mainstreaming gender.
