Justice and Civil Society Program

The Justice and Civil Society Program is an initiative that brings into the Spanish context the “Citizens Lawyers Forum” seminar, organized by Aspen Institute España in collaboration with ESADE Law School in 2013 and 2014. The “Justice and Civil Society” seminars, in turn, is connected with the “Justice and Society” seminar at The Aspen Institute, USA, which for four decades has brought together a wide range of legal experts to discuss the value of justice and the relationship between policies public and fundamental rights. Along the same lines, but focusing on the Spanish reality, the program “Justice and Civil Society” operates as an open dialogue forum among representatives of the various legal professions existing in Spain including judges, lawyers, notaries, senior government officials, NGO representatives and academics.
