Inaccessible Justice and Social Inequalities in Mexico

How can Mexico be the fifteenth world economy and find itself at the bottom of international rankings as regards civil and criminal justice? Because they concentrate a large share of the budget allocated to justice, the federal courts are the only ones able to provide quality service. However, in their vast majority, Mexicans only have access to local courts of first instance. Their low resources prevent them from resorting to the amparo, a procedure that allows for a direct request of constitutional review in order to bring to a federal court a case first brought before a local court. This severe judicial inequality, which favours the political and economic elites of the country, explains why conflicts are often solved outside the legal institutions and the framework established by law.
