On 27 November 2014, President
Enrique Peña Nieto asked the Center for Economic Research and Teaching (CIDE)
to organize consultation forums to identify the changes required to ensure
greater access to justice.
On the basis of the

of Law and sanctions for legal malpractice 5) Violence in schools 6) Prompt
legal assistance and alternative justice 7) Organization and functioning of the

Public Policy regarding justice.
Since the beginning of the
Dialogues, the 124 members of the working groups-researchers and experts from
civil society, academics, lawyers, representatives of autonomous organizations
and various authorities in the executive, legislative and judicial powers, met

The working groups, in
which representatives from 26 different institutions take part, confirmed that
although there has been significant progress in access to justice, there are
still major challenges involving various stakeholders to ensure that Mexicans
have the appropriate means for solving these everyday conflicts.
The working groups are
currently at the stage of building solutions to address the problems identified
in the diagnosis and make justice for all Mexicans commonplace.
