Daniel Barceló Rojas, professor of comparative law of UNAM's Institute of Legal Research, was selected for a 2007-2008 UC MEXUS-CONACYT faculty fellowship at UC Berkeley's School of Law. During his three-month stay, Barceló Rojas conducted research on American judicial federalism and state constitutional law under the direction of Harry Scheiber, professor of law and history. Barceló Rojas' research will inform a proposal for a new model of collaboration of Mexican state and federal courts that he is developing with Mexico's Supreme Court Justice Sergio Valls. Barceló Rojas presented his model in the IX National Congress of Mexican State Constitutional Law held in Toluca, Mexico this fall. His research will also be incorporated within the textbook Lessons on Mexican Federalism and State Constitutional Law, which he is currently writing for use by Mexican law students.
