Program Description
The conference will be delivered in the Spanish language.
When international evidence, transnational crime, or a foreign citizen is involved in any case, we face requirements not only of U.S. law but international rules and protocols. The investigation process must follow international law and treaties, which are essential to follow the rule of law.
Education in International Police Investigations involves the knowledge and practice of international law that demands a different legal specified approach according to each nation. Attorneys must be ready to perform their tasks for an international case and have the flexibility to understand how the police functions and the investigation protocols in the Americas can have a different role, impact, and results in an investigation.
The agenda will set constitutional provisions and statutes from some nations in the Americas, such as the United States, Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, and Venezuela, to provide the opportunity to evaluate the ways of conducting international investigations. By comparison of various legal systems in real scenarios, the application of treaties and international agreements and protocols is necessary.
