Judicial reform in postliberal Mexico.

This paper discusses the trends of the current cycle of judicial reform in post-liberal Mexico aiming to clarify the epistemologies behind this process. After the election of President Lopez Obrador in 2018, Mexico has embarked upon a profound change of the transitional liberal institutions that were established in the last 30 years. This trend includes relevant reforms to the federal judiciary, considered one of the champions of the transition to democracy. While fighting impunity and corruption is at the heart of the debate, there is also a discussion about whether the process also intends to compromise judicial independence favoring hyper-presidencialism.
