Abstract:     
This article lays a foundation and challenge for a common lawyer wishing to advance knowledge about the legal systems in Latin America. It surveys the current state of research regarding Latin American legal institutions and obstacles to research, like the fact that there is no such cohesive or preordained or related body of laws that can be broadly labeled as Latin American law. Then it suggests the new approach that scholars must take, emphasizing immersion in the culture and study of law, as a jurist and not a tourist, as a foundation for a life of study. It concludes that the common lawyer can learn a great deal from Latin America while concomitantly contributing to Latin America.
