Abstract

This article discusses the work of the Cuban exile Mario Diaz Cruz, Jr., in the field of comparative law and his editing of the Comparative Juridical Review published in Miami from 1964 to 1994. With particular focus on Latin America, the bilingual Review was published through Diaz Cruz's small, independent institute of comparative law. In the 1990s, the institute sought to draft provisions for property reclamations in post-Castro Cuba.
