     Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east. It is known for its diverse ecosystems, including rainforests, beaches, and volcanoes, and its commitment to environmental conservation. The official language is Spanish, and San José is the capital city. It’s a popular destination for ecotourism and adventure tourism.

The Costa Rican legal system:

          I want to tell you a little about Costa Rica, where I was born and live.  The Costa Rican system is rooted in the Romano-Germanic style of law. Costa Rica is not a “common law country.” We have codification at our very core. However, jurisprudence does play a vital role in the dynamics of our legality. Judges are, therefore, liable in the eyes of the law and can only act within its boundaries. Not every dispute is resolved in the judicial system since many disputes can be discussed in arbitrations and mediations, alternate forms of conflict resolution.

The legal system of Costa Rica is based on the Civil Law system, which is similar to the legal systems of other countries in Latin America. The Constitution of Costa Rica is the country’s supreme law, and all other laws and regulations must be consistent with it. The judiciary is independent and has the power of judicial review to ensure that laws and government actions comply with the Constitution.

Legal advice in Costa Rica:

Costa Rica is a country of approximately five million people.  Due to its small size, it´s not a federal state, as it has only seven provinces.  It´s located in Central America, between Panama and Nicaragua. Our country is a presidential constitutional republic, a democracy, one of the oldest in America.  We have no army, and therefore we are a peaceful nation.

The Courts in Costa Rica:

The court system in Costa Rica is divided into three levels: lower courts, appellate courts, and the Supreme Court. The lower courts, or Juzgados de Primera Instancia, handle criminal and civil cases and family and labor disputes. The appellate courts, or Tribunales de Apelación, hear appeals from the lower courts. Finally, the Supreme Court is the highest in the country and has the power of final review of cases.

Costa Rica also has a system of public prosecutors, who are responsible for investigating and prosecuting crimes, and a system of public defense attorneys, who provide legal representation to individuals who cannot afford a private attorney.

Costa Rica has ratified several international human rights treaties and is a member of several international organizations, so the country’s legal system is also influenced by international law.
