The partnership and friendly relations between Ukraine and the Republic of Chile have a long history. Chile is now a reliable and extremely important partner of Ukraine on the international scene. Countries bring together more than two dozen bilateral agreements on trade, investments, culture, education, science and legal assistance. It should be noted that among the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, Chile is a leader in innovation. The judicial system is no exception.
Learning from the experience of the models of justice in Latin America could lead to success in the implementation of the national legal model. Therefore, the choice of topics for further discussion was quite consistent.
