The partnership of LACC and FIU's Department of Modern Languages is proud to launch "Introduction to Haitian Creole Translation" —a state-of-the-art addition to its extensive portfolio of Haitian Creole language and culture course offerings. The Fall 2016 course is taught by Visitng Professor Faidherbe (Fedo) Boyer, founder of CREOLETRANS and a nationally- and internationally-recognized leader in the field of Haitian Creole translation and interpretation.
Following a year as Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Law at the University of Trento in Italy, LACC Affiliated Faculty member Jorge Esquirol publishes Ficções do Direito Latino-Americano. Two main traditions of comparative legal writing on Latin America are explored —the European-legal-family and the economic-development-reforms traditions— to conclude that each reflects a paradigm while also indirectly undermining the legitimacy of law and threatening the reform projects they generated.
On Tuesday, August 9, LACC’s LAMRI team presented to Uruguayan officials and members of civil society the current phase of their Open Society-funded research on the country’s groundbreaking 2012 regulation of marijuana production and distribution. By early 2016, according to findings, a majority of citizens still oppose the law and remain unclear on its repercussions and how the distribution of recreational cannabis through pharmacies will work.
