Overview

Law, Culture, and Economic Development brings together some of the leading legal scholars, policymakers, and practitioners in the international economic development area - with the emphasis on Latin America - to address key issues of legal reform facing developing countries in their effort to achieve accessible, equitable, and sustainable economic development. Issues of cultural impediments are stressed. This collection includes contributions from many experts in the field, including current and former officials from the World Bank. Topics considered from a developmental perspective include human rights, legal institutions, judicial reform, investment treaties, investment disputes, corruption, financial sector reform, accounting systems, linkage to the WTO, administrative legality, intellectual property, corruption, taxation, and legal education reform. The chapters in this festschrift are derived from presentations made at the 2006 Paul Carrington Memorial Lecture at Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas, honoring the distinguished career and 75th birthday of the Hon. Roberto MacLean - a law dean, judge, central banker, ambassador, legal scholar, and judicial reform expert.
