Argentina

The Regional Fellow in Argentina taught at the University of Palermo, where she developed a model in which she joined various courses at the law school, including Constitutional Law, International Law, General Theories of Law, Philosophy of Law, and Trial Practice, as a co-teacher. Many of these courses are part of the traditional law school curricula required of all students. Her goal was to introduce a gender perspective traversally throughout the law school curriculum, in order to reach the maximum number of students. She also taught in the law school clinic where she focused on gender-based cases. She held roundtable discussions with faculty members and public fora on women's rights issues. In addition to teaching, the Regional Fellow in Argentina also authored the Constitutional Law Chapter of the Gender and the Law textbook.
