A New Criminal Justice System for Uruguay

Uruguay’s new criminal justice system entered into force in November 2017.

While JSCA was not involved with the original design of this reform, it had the privilege of contributing to the latest legislative effort, which was meant to better define a criminal procedure model and implement a complete training plan that would allow officials, operators and institutions to ensure its correct operation.

A total of 400 people were trained through the Technical Cooperation Agreement that JSCA signed with Uruguay’s Ministry of the Interior in February of that year.

Six training cycles were developed on litigation strategies and skills for an oral adversarial system.
