Carlota Ucín

Carlota Ucín is Chair Professor in Procedural Law at the University of Palermo (Argentina) and former Associate Professor at the National University of La Plata where she also founded the Public Interest Journal. As a graduate professor, she has been invited to lecture throughout many Latin American universities.

 

For many years now, she has been studying the public interest litigation practice through a procedural and argumentative perspective. In her recently published book: Juicio a la desigualdad. La defensa de los derechos sociales a través del proceso (Marcial Pons, 2021) she presents different procedural alternatives to conduct social transformation through law and civil procedure.

 

Carlota Ucín actually works at Erasmus School of Law as a postdoctoral researcher within the Project Affordable access to justice (financed by the Dutch Research Council – NWO). In that context, her research focuses on access to justice applied to public interest litigation in general and climate change litigation in particular.

 

She was graduated in Law in Argentina where she obtained her PhD (Buenos Aires University, 2016) and a Procedural Law Specialization (UNA, 2006). Her background also includes legal theory studies and legal argumentation (Alicante, Spain, 2011). For more than ten years she has worked at the Buenos Aires Supreme Court writing opinions on behalf of the Public Ministry. She had previously practised as a private lawyer in Argentina.
