The Role of Judiciaries in Young Democracies


A Panel Discussion Presented by LL.M. students, Perseo Quiroz Rendon, Sarah Nusrullah and Lerato Thulo

The legal systems in Mexico, Pakistan and South Africa have been developed through different historical processes and address very different social needs. However, they all face similar challenges when defining the role of the judiciary in implementing the catalog of constitutional rights that they have chosen to adopt. Our panelists, all current LL.M. students, Perseo Quiroz Rendon (Mexico), Sarah Nasrullah (Pakistan) and Lerato Thulo (South Africa) will reflect on the consequences of the jurisdictional scope of their national courts.
