Legal Patrimony of Haiti: An Annotated Bibliography

Legal Education, Legal History, The Legal Patrimony of Haiti Ben Boron

With the heightened interest in Haiti following the earthquake of 2010, and the troubled state of its institutions in the decades before that, the goal of The Legal Patrimony of Haiti: An Annotated Bibliography by the LLMC Staff is to provide a comprehensive and bilingual bibliographic foundation upon which Haitians and others of goodwill can re-start the process of building Haitian legal and governmental institutions.

All of the annotations included are published in a bilingual format to facilitate use by both French and English language readers.
