Abstract

The paper describes how adequacy of representation has recently arrived to Argentina’s legal system in the field of representative litigation. First of all, in the FederalSupreme Court’s case law. Then, in some bills which are nowadays pending before Congress. Lastly, in the Preliminary Draft of a new Civil Code recently announced by the President and the Chief Justice of the Federal Supreme Court. I take a critical approach towards the issue, particularly because of the little attention paid to such a relevant aspect of representative proceedings
