This Article presents twenty-one theses involving the negative, in the view of the author, influences that the French Revolution has had on Latin American legal systems since their independence. The propositions do not exhaust the respective topics, since each of them could be the object of a standalone tractatus. Instead, these propositions aim at motivating further academic discussion on the positions presented. The theses revolve around five areas of impact: the ethical and philosophical substratum of the political system, the fundamentals of the democratic regime, the organization of the branches of government, the paradigms of fairness, justice, and axiology, and the shaping of family life, public morals and the legal profession.
