Chicago-Kent Law Review
By some accounts, Latin American contract documentation increas- ingly resembles U.S. contract documentation.1 This is puzzling, given that the U.S. documentation has developed in a broader institutional context particular to the U.S. The context includes a particular type of legal train- ing, particular types of law firms, particular legal institutions, and so on. Why is this occurring, and what effect will it have on contracting practice in Latin America? This commentary briefly considers these issues; it con- siders as well some broader implications of international convergence in contracting practices.
