Alberto Fernández, president of Argentina
                                                                                                                                                                The President of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, announced a profound judicial reform during his speech before the Legislative Assembly to inaugurate the 138th period of ordinary sessions of the National Congress.

Among the highlights is its announcement that the trial by jury law ordered by the National Constitution will finally be implemented at the federal level, after 167 years of long wait.

“We must optimize the functioning of the Supreme Court of Justice and improve the work of the Judiciary and the Federal Prosecution. Also, we will finally establish trial by jury, fulfilling the constitutional mandate  and we will modernize the Penal Code”, said the President.   


Time has not passed in vain and the Argentine provinces have shown in the last five years that the jury trial is a resounding cultural and political success.

The AAJJ celebrates with joy this announcement of the President and predicts the greatest success.
