Professor M.C. Mirow presented at an international conference on French and Mexican legal history in Veracruz, Mexico, last week. His paper addressed the relationship between the French legal sociologist Leon Duguit and the drafting of the Mexican Constitution of 1917, the first “social” constitution of the Americas. The conference was hosted by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Mexico City), the University of Lille (France), and the University of Cristobal Colon (Veracruz, Mexico). His paper was “Duguit y pensadores europeos en la funcion social de la propiedad y la Constitucion Mexicana de 1917.”
