UPC and Georgetown University Organized a Seminar on the Constitution and Government of Courts in Society

From January 14-17, Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) and Georgetown University gathered members of Peru’s Supreme Court to attend the seminar "Constitution and Government of Courts in Society." The event was an opportunity for members of the Supreme Court, the highest court in Peru, and the post-graduate School of Law at UPC to dialogue about these issues.

The seminar was divided into four sessions that covered rule of law, separation of powers, constitutional control, and administration of justice and economic development.

Well-known American constitutionalist, John S. Baker, a visiting professor from the School of Law at Georgetown University, in Washington, D.C., and member of the Advisory Committee of the UPC School of Law, also presented and shared his thoughts with attendees at the courthouse.

Georgetown University is among the top 15 law schools in the United States, according to the latest U.S. News and World Report.
