SANJURJO DE DRIOLLET, Inés. The Institution of Justice of the Peace: Dispute Resolution Regarding Small Neighbouring Claims in Civil and Commercial Matters (San Rafael, Mendoza, 1900-1916). Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2010, n.32, pp. 395-418. ISSN 0716-5455. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-54552010000100015.
This article analyses the institution of the justice of the peace in a town located south of Mendoza (Argentina). We will begin by studying the legislation until 1916, especially of the provincial constitutions of 1900 and 1910, the respective organic laws and their articulation with the Codes of Procedure enacted in the province at the end of the 19th Century. We will then study institutional practices, especially focused on civil and commercial matters between 1900 and 1916, in order to deepen into the local legal culture connotations.
