Autonomous University of Baja California prepares for oral trials course

Beginning in August, the Autonomous University of Baja California’s law school will incorporate oral trials into its curriculum in preparation for such hearings to begin in Mexicali next year, and in Tijuana in 2011. The university has sent professors to Oaxaca to receive training in preparation for the new curriculum. Oaxaca, along with Chihuahua and Nuevo León, was one of the first states in the nation to implement oral trials. It is estimated that around 200 students will be trained under the new curriculum. The university will offer the courses this summer for those students about to graduate at the end of the current term.
