Universidad Francisco Marroquín

  • Universidad Francisco Marroquín was founded originally with only two schools, or faculties: School of Economics and the School of Juridical Science. It was constituted as a university destined to the study and spread of the liberal thinking; therefore, both faculties, whose areas of knowledge constitute the basis of liberalism, came to be indispensable. The School of Juridical Science was created precisely with such name and not with the name of Faculty of Law School –typical name used for the identification of such schools–, due to the fact that, since the beginning of its founding, it was meant to distinguish between the study of legislation and the study of legal and juridical science.

  • The Faculty of Juridical Science has the following mission:


    ““In such circumstances, the important thing is to formulate and examine theories and principles, and not to educate technicians for its application, since the validity of such principles is what has been challenged and questioned. Consequently, with this objective and orientation, the study syllabus emphasizes in the study of the science of the law, its nature, foundations, and philosophy, rather than in the study of legislation in itself and of the auxiliary sciences of the law, such as sociology.””

  • In this manner, the teaching of the science of the law, in this faculty, has been designed to go further in the knowledge of law, rather than being limited to the study of legislation, for example, law and regulation. Nowadays, during the training on the science of the law (juridical science) in the aforesaid School, with 11 semesters, the Faculty utilizes 3 different teaching methods:


    1. Magisterial class
    2. Problem Based Learning (PBL)
    3. Socratic method or Socratic debate
  • In accordance with the teaching of the science of law (juridical science), the Faculty’s highest ranked authority is the Academic Dean, assisted by the Faculty Council. The actual academic authorities are:


    1. Milton Estuardo Argueta Pinto
      Dean
    2. María José Lamuño de Mendoza
      General Secretary
    3. Carmen María Escobar Escobar
      Scholars and Professors Representative
