In 2018, JSCA’s team began to develop a draft law for a General Procedure Code in Chubut. The goal was to move towards a comprehensive civil and commercial, family, labor and contentious-administrative justice reform in the province.
An Inter-Branch Commission was formed that consisted of representatives of the province’s Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches. Its mandate was to create a proposal for a non-criminal justice reform.
JSCA provided technical assistance for the drafting process and the design and comprehensive planning of the reform. It also provided training in 2019.
It is important to note that the project introduces innovations such as judicial case management, comprehensive regulation of individual and collective dispute management mechanisms and trial by jury for civil disputes with social significance.
The reform of the civil and commercial, family, labor and contentious-administrative justice system in the Argentine province of Chubut is moving forward.
