Abstract
This article reviews recent sociolegal scholarship on Mexico related to three topics: (i) the judiciary, the courts, and judicial behavior; (ii) public security and the criminal justice system; and (iii) legal culture. While existing scholarship provides a wealth of information and systematized data on legal phenomena, there is still a conspicuous scarcity of explanations and of systematic empirical analysis. This makes for a lot of research opportunities for sociolegal scholarship in a country that has been under profound and peculiar political, social, and economic transformation in the last three decades. Keywords: Courts; Judicial Behavior; Public Security; Criminal Justice System; Legal Culture
