ABOUT THE

Program

The issuance of the 1991 Constitution, the controversies surrounding the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court, the resolution of tutelas and the constitutionalization of ordinary law, have given particular doctrinal and practical relevance to the constitutional subject in its multiple spheres. To a large extent, constitutional interpretation has become the backbone of legal interpretation. Legal disciplines have tended to become constitutionalized, due to the radiating effect that constitutional rights and principles have on the whole legal system, and even on private relations. The decisions of constitutional judges are at the center of numerous political and legal debates.

All these changes not only explain the new importance of Constitutional Law in Colombia, but also a relevant transformation in the way it is studied and comprehended. In this sense, it is necessary to train lawyers and judges with in-depth knowledge of Constitutional Law, with an emphasis on the interpretative dimension of constitutional phenomena, particularly on fundamental rights, but without neglecting the analysis of institutional elements and the socio-political context in which constitutional practice unfolds.
