  • Procedimientos Amicus Curiae en Latinoamérica en relación a disputas de Propiedad Industrial. ¿Un amigo de la Corte?

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/20/2018

    Con el fin de discutir la eficacia y pertinencia actual de esta institución jurídica, dos panelistas calificados compartirán sus perspectivas sobre ella y su relevancia en el contexto de las controversias que surgen en relación con la Propiedad Industrial.

    La institución de Amicus Curiae nace como un medio para ayudar a los órganos jurisdiccionales llegar a una decisión más justa y oportuna. A través de ella, se ha permitido a terceros ajenos al juicio emitir opiniones expertas sobre el asunto de controversia con el fin de servir de apoyo a jueces quienes muchas veces no tienen un conocimiento técnico en determinados temas. En América Latina dicha institución no ha tenido un tratamiento uniforme, por lo que cabe preguntarse si es una herramienta efectiva que ayude el encuentro de soluciones justas en nuestro continente.
