Secretary of Chile’s Constitutional Court gives lecture at Leiden Law School
On 27 February, Rodrigo Pica, Secretary of Chile’s Constitutional Court, gave a lecture to the students of the Advanced Master’s in European and International Human Rights Law at Leiden Law School.
In his lecture, Pica addressed the main institutional features of this legal body such as its unconstitutionality control. Similary, he referred to some of the Court’s main jurisprudential steps in recent cases such as the legalization of abortion on three grounds. By the end of his presentation, Pica addressed the comparative approach of Chile’s Constitutional Court in its case law, which allowed for the possibility of an exchange between various courts of the Americas including the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
Pica has been in Europe in the context of a working visit to Spain’s Constitutional Court, where he was received by its President, Juan José González Rivas. In Leiden, he was invited at the request of Eduardo Arenas Catalán, Academic Coordinator for the Advanced Master’s in European and International Human Rights Law.
