Illustrious administrative law attorney Mr. Juan Carlos Cassagne (Ph.D.) visited Estudio Fermandois

In the context of the XLIX Chilean Conference on Public Law held at Pontificia Universidad Católica on October 18th and 19th, on Friday 19th we had the visit of the distinguished Argentine professor and administrative lawyer Mr. Juan Carlos Cassagne (Ph.D.) who was the main guest at an interesting conversation breakfast held at the Law Firm. Public law specialists from different law firms participated in the breakfast, such as Mario Galindo (VGC Abogados), Eugenio Evans (Cubillos, Evans Abogados), David Cademártori (Barros & Errázuriz) and Guillermo de la Jara (Bofill, Mir, Álvarez, Jara).

Professor Cassagne talked about his extensive academic and professional career, describing his extensive experience as a law professor and as a lawyer and partner of the most important law firms in Argentina. He illustrated us about the functioning of the contentious-administrative tribunals, about the law firms in which he has practiced professionally and his partners and also addressed, in addition, several concerns related to the difficulties and challenges involved in the simultaneous development of the academic vocation with the practice of the profession. Finally, he stressed the importance that lawyers dedicated to academia should not be disconnected from reality, from the free exercise of the profession.
