New Issue of the Revista Argentina de Teoría Jurídica

Those interested in readings on free speech and discussion with speacialists on the recent and forthcoming reforms to media laws in Latin America, you may find the enew number of the Revista Argentina de Teoría Jurídica worth reading. It includes two translations papers by Robert Post, Dean of Yale Law School.
The issue is available for free here:
Just to give a bit of background about the journal - of which I am currently an acting coordinator -, the Torcuato Di Tella University Revista Argentina de Teoría Jurídica is a law journal dedicated to an interdisciplinary approach to legal studies. While the journal’s principal focus is legal theory, it also includes theoretical analysis of case-law, juridical commentary, notes, and surveys of literature. Revista is a very special publication in that Latin American law schools do not usually have publications of this kind.

Since its founding in 1999, the journal has sought to contribute to and amplify traditional legal doctrine by exploring the connections between law, economics, moral and political philosophy, history, and political science. In 2009, with the publication of Volume 10, the journal celebrates 10 consecutive years of publication during which it has made its mark on legal scholarship. The journal’s impact on the contemporary debate surrounding legal and social problems in Argentina has been recognized by the Supreme Court of Justice of the Argentina (CSJN), which mentions the journal in its “Mazzeo” ruling (Fallos 330:3248), in which two articles were cited.

The journal appears in both digital and paper formats. The digital format journal is issued biannually in June and November. It is available free of charge at the Escuela de Derecho website. The paper edition, published annually in conjunction with Abeledo-Perrot, is tailored to a wider audience from various disciplinary backgrounds. It contains a selection of articles and notes that the editors consider pertinent to the general-interest reader.

The journal is edited by Law School students, who may also contribute their original work. The direction and academic coordination of the journal is undertaken by faculty of the Law School. You can find more data about the journal here:
