The Justice and Civil Society Program operates as a forum for open dialogue between esteemed professionals in the legal field. The program is not exclusively limited to lawyers, and also includes representatives of the judicial profession, notary publics, professors, etc. In each edition of the Program, we bring together a group of 25-30 participants. Among other proponents of the initiative are Antonio Hernández-Gil, Teresa Arsuaga, Carlos Álvarez-Romero, José María Segovia, Román Gil Albuquerque, and José M. de Areilza.
The programming takes place over the duration of a workday and is based upon previously distributed readings which form the center and heart of the debate. These debates are led by two moderators, who formulate questions based upon the readings and guide the discussion so that it addresses the principle questions of the seminar. The format of the debate adheres to Chatham House rules and is in accordance with the general principles that direct the activities of the Aspen Institute worldwide.
