TL;DR: The role of defence attorneys in pre-trial incarceration in Latin America has been analyzed in this article. But, despite the fact that few empirical studies have analyzed the role of defense attorneys, few studies have been conducted in the US.
Abstract: Pre-trial detention is used extensively in Latin America as a systematic practice implemented by courts. Despite this fact, few empirical studies have analysed the role of defence attorneys in pre-trial incarceration. This paper attempts to describe the actions taken by lawyers in order to free their clients during the judicial process, using new empirical evidence collected from the incarcerated population in Argentina, Brazil, El Salvador, Chile, Mexico and Peru. Results suggest that public defenders request conditional release less frequently but do so more effectively than their private counterparts.
TL;DR: The role of criminal law for such purposes is limited and criminal policy is but one more in the set of public policies called to improve road safety, which is far indeed from being the most effective in this area.
Abstract: The motor traffic proposes new challenges to criminal law, which, according to the punitive tendencies so common today, is presented to the Colombian public opinion, by media and legislators, as the only possible solution to counter the high rate of deaths and injuries caused, in particular, by drunk drivers. However, the creation of new offenses or the hardening of existing penalties can hardly contribute to the reduction of these figures; the role of criminal law for such purposes is limited and criminal policy is but one more in the set of public policies called to improve road safety, which is far indeed from being the most effective in this area.
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present caracteres generales de la relacion entre el derecho penal and la revolucion, and examina los hechos problematicos, politicos, sociales e, incluso, filosoficos that circunscriben dicha ley a un marco analitico.
Abstract: El proceso de codificacion penal en Colombia se puede entender como un ejercicio de reafirmacion elitista, que se desarrolla en un marco de anarquia legal independentista. El presente articulo ofrece esta interpretacion, gracias al analisis historiografico de la legislacion penal colombiana redactada a comienzos del siglo xix. En primer lugar, se cuestiona la idea —imperante en la historiografia del derecho— de que tal proceso de codificacion haya sido un esfuerzo revolucionario o un simple reflejo de la ideologia liberal europea. Luego de ubicar historicamente y conceptualmente el debate, el articulo presenta —desde una perspectiva historiografica— los caracteres generales de la relacion entre el derecho penal y la revolucion. Posteriormente, examina los hechos problematicos, politicos, sociales e, incluso, filosoficos que circunscriben dicha ley a un marco analitico.
