At the Special Committee meeting, I was discussing this blog with one of my colleagues, Venezuelan lawyer Javier L. Ochoa Muñoz of the American Association of Private International Law (ASADIP). I asked whether the name Cartas Blogatorias would work in Spanish as well as Letters Blogatory works in English, and Javier said it would indeed. And so I have registered the domain name cartasblogatorias.com with the intention of partnering with Latin American lawyers (I’m not putting Javier on the spot here!) to bring readers original Spanish-language coverage of international judicial assistance developments in Central and South America. Pretty cool, no?
And so in honor of the occasion, you’ll notice that I’ve changed the name of the blog for the day. (Email readers, you’ll need to check on the web to see the new name). Please don’t navigate to cartasblogatorias.com yet, because it’s not set up.
Maybe this will work in other languages, too. Commissions Blogatoires? Others?
