UHLC's Center for U.S and Mexican Law partners with Rice's Baker Institute for book

Book CoverJan. 4, 2017 - The University of Houston Law Center's Center for U.S. and Mexican Law recently published a book that examines recent reform of the energy sector in Mexico.

The book is titled, "Estado de Derecho y Reforma Energética en México," which translates to "The Rule of Law and Mexico's Energy Reform." The project is the culmination of a major research effort to examine rule of law issues arising under Mexico's new energy legislation.

It was published in collaboration with the Baker Institute's Mexico Center at Rice University, in association with the School of Government and Public Transformation of the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, the Centro de Investigación para el Desarrollo A.C. (CIDAC), and the Faculty of Law and Criminology at the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León.

The book is dedicated to former Dean and Professor Stephen P. Zamora, Founding Director of the Center for U.S. and Mexican Law and one of the organizers of the research project. Zamora passed away in July 2016.

Center for U.S. and Mexican Law Affiliate Scholars who contributed to the book include Dr. José Ramón Cossío Díaz, a Justice of the Mexican Supreme Court and Dr. Alberto Abad Suárez Ávila, Professor-Researcher at Instituto de Investigaciones Jurídicas de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (IIJ-UNAM).

A conclusion is co-authored by Zamora and Tony Payan, director of Rice's Mexico Center.

Chapters of the book will be available in English in the spring of 2017.
