Inter-American Juridical Committee elects new authorities

On August 5, 2022, and within the framework of the 101st Regular Session, the Inter-American Juridical Committee (CJI), elected Dr. José Antonio Moreno Rodríguez (a citizen of Paraguay) by acclamation as new Chair of this entity, during the session held at its headquarters in the City of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As Vice-Chair, the members elected Dr. George Rodrigo Bandeira Galindo (a citizen of Brazil). Both authorities will take office as of January 1, 2023.

Established in 1906, the CJI is one of the main entities in the Organization of American States (OAS). It is made up of eleven jurists who are nationals of the OAS Member States, elected by the General Assembly. It serves as an advisory body to the Organization on juridical matters, and is in charge of the progressive development and codification of international law, both public and private. It furthermore promotes harmonization of the legislations of the countries on the Continent through model laws and legislative guides, among others.
