The Iberoamerican Association of Law Schools (SUI IURIS) just approved unanimously the accession of FIU Law as permanent member during its XII Annual Meeting held on May 19, 2021. As a result, FIU Law will join the 29-member organization formed by the most prominent law schools from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, and Venezuela. SUI IURIS offers a strong support network for academic collaborations, including law journals, visits and exchanges of professors and researchers, continuing legal education and other educational opportunities for students and faculty.
Prior to becoming a permanent member, FIU Law held observer status at the organization for three years. Gilberto A. Guerrero-Rocca, director of the FIU Law LL.M. program, was responsible to lead this effort to fruition and will continue to serve as FIU Law’s point person with the organization. This important milestone is the latest demonstration of FIU Law’s successful strategy toward expanding its international reach and strengthening its presence throughout Latin America and Europe.
