Educación jurídica y reproducción social en Colombia
Legal Education and Social Reproduction in Colombia;
Educação jurídica e reprodução social na Colômbia
Ceballos Bedoya, María
The purpose of this article is to study the relationship between the quality of the legal education in Colombia and the socioeconomic status of the law students. This article presents two conclusions. First, the supply of legal education is wide and heterogeneous in Colombia, and it is characterized by the prevalence of low-cost and low-quality private programs. Second, admission to high-quality legal education depends on students’ social origin. Only those who have either high economic capacity (in the private sector) or outstanding academic results (in the public sector) are able to access this kind of programs. It suggests that legal education reproduces inequalities instead of reducing them.
