Justice and Civil Society

The Justice and Civil Society Seminar is a new initiative that brings into the Spanish context the “Citizen Lawyers Forum” seminar, organized by Aspen Institute España in collaboration with ESADE Law School, in 2013 and 2014. The “Justice and Civil Society” seminar, in turn, is connected with the “Justice and Society” seminar of The Aspen Institute USA program, which for four decades has brought together a wide range of legal experts to discuss the value of Justice and the relationship between public policies 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 prestigious representatives of the various legal professions existing in Spain (not exclusively practicing lawyers in their different realities), including judges, lawyers, notaries, government officials, NGOs representatives and academics.
