JOINING FORCES - Two legal groups—one in Mexico and the other in the United States—have agreed to work together to protect the rule of law in both countries, Law.com International’s Amy Guthrie reports. The New York City Bar Association’s Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice and the Mexican Bar Foundation have agreed to form a joint committee that will focus on strengthening judicial and democratic institutions in both countries. “The rule of law is suffering today in Mexico,” said Enrique González Calvillo, chair of the board of trustees at the Mexican Bar Foundation and founding partner at González Calvillo Abogados, a large Mexican law firm. “The Vance Center’s support and experience will be absolutely key to us.”
