With over 60 presentations by professors from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, El Salvador, Italy, France, Mexico, Peru, Spain, and Venezuela, the congress is often considered the most important gathering of historians of Spanish colonial law. Mirow and FIU are the only presenter and university from the United States listed in the program. Presentation at the congress is by invitation.
“It is really an honor for me to be invited to the congress and to represent Florida and the United States at this international event.
