LAW198  A  CUBA: LAW, POLICY AND TRANSITION

Course Description
This course introduces students to the fascinating and complex world of Cuban civil law, with the study of current issues in the legislative field from a practical approach, with special reference to property rights in Cuba, the Cuban hereditary system and family law, including matters related to the private sector as well as the main new developments in foreign investment. The course highlights the troubled trajectory that Cuban civil law has had since 1987 when the Cuban Civil Code (Law 59) was passed until today.
