This course is a general introduction to Mexican law. It will begin with the origins of Mexican law in the Napoleonic Code, a different system from the origin of American and Canadian law in English common law. It will include attention to the historical influence of Roman law on both the written and precedent law systems in Mexico; compare criminal law systems of Anglo and Latin origin; discuss a general theory of law in Mexico in terms of structure and division; and end with an analysis of the current Mexican law system from the federal to the local levels, including attention to the theory vs. the reality of law in Mexico.
