A wonderful bilingual edition of the Mexican Civil Code, published in 2009, was recently added to the law library’s collection. The Mexican Civil Code covers multiple areas of law, including family law, property law, the law of successions, the law of obligations, and contract law.
In this volume, each article of the code is accompanied by its English-language translation, which is extremely helpful for non-Spanish speakers. An extensive bibliography of Spanish- and English-language Mexican law secondary sources, organized by topic, is also provided.
If you choose to analyze Mexican law as part of a comparative law research project, this book will serve as an invaluable resource.
