Mexican Law Review, Forthcoming
The purpose of this article is to analyze Mexico's system of legal education, which, in a narrow sense, refers to the study of the "Licenciatura en Derecho" and the process for obtaining the license to practice as a lawyer. The study concentrates on three issues: (a) the procedure to obtain the license to practice law in Mexico; (b) the content and structure of the law program; and (c) the increase in the number of law schools during the last decade, focusing on the causes and characteristics of this growth.
