  • Presumption of innocence in gender violence criminal proceedings

    • Abstract: Resumen: La presunción de inocencia es un derecho fundamental reconocido a nivel universal. Diversos son los factores que pueden menoscabar este derecho de todo investigado y encausado. En los últimos tiempos la presión social ante determinados delitos condiciona el pleno respeto a la presunción de inocencia. Analizamos un supuesto específico del proceso penal en el cual la presunción de inocencia del encausado, por el tipo de delito de que se trata, violencia de género, queda directamente vinculada a la disponibilidad probatoria que, además, en estos específicos supuestos, presenta características propias. : Presumption of innocence is a fundamental right recognized at a universal level. Various factors can undermine this right of all investigated and prosecuted. In recent times, the social pressure on certain crimes conditions the full respect for the presumption of innocence. We analyze a specific case of criminal proceedings in which the presumption of innocence of the accused, due to the type of crime in question, gender violence, is directly linked to the probatory availability that, in addition, in these specific assumptions, has its own characteristics.
       
  • Study of the subsidiarity requirement of the necessity defense

    • Abstract: Resumen: Un aspecto controvertido en el estado de necesidad es determinar cuál es la esencia de esta institución. Para estos efectos, en este artículo se realiza un estudio del requisito de la subsidiariedad, contemplado en la circunstancia segunda de la disposición del art. 10 Nº 11, esto es, que no exista otro medio practicable y menos perjudicial para evitarlo. Si bien dicho requisito se posiciona en la necesidad concreta, pareciera ser que puede ser parte de la abstracta a través de la inevitabilidad. Por ello, pretendemos demostrar cuándo la conducta del agente requiere de un único medio, en el caso de la necesidad abstracta, para estar amparada por el estado de necesidad. : The paper exposes a study of the subsidiarity requirement of the necessity defense, as well as its relationship to the article 10 Nº 11 second circumstance. The subsidiarity requirement is theoretically founded through an interpretation of concrete necessity. However, it seems to be also part of necessity based on the inevitability. In this sense, the article attempts to identify when the agent conduct requires only a single mean, in the necessity case, to be covered by the necessity defense.
       
  • The protection of monumental arboreal heritage in Spanish legislation. Its
           application to tourism and the landscape

    • Abstract: Resumen: En el presente trabajo se analizan los principales aspectos de las Leyes 4/2006, de 19 de mayo, de la Comunitat Valenciana (España) y 14/2006, de 7 de noviembre, de la Región de Murcia (España), de patrimonio arbóreo monumental que protegen al árbol como monumento natural. Los árboles son un elemento identificador e integrador del paisaje cultural, vinculado con el turismo de naturaleza y el diseño de rutas, que permiten al turista conocer los árboles monumentales protegidos. Esto fomentará el turismo interesado en el patrimonio cultural y la dinamización de un territorio. : In the present work the principal aspects of the Act 4/2004, dated 19 th may of the Comunitat Valenciana (Spain) and the Act 14/2006, dated 9 th November, Region of Murcia (Spain), of arboreal monumental heritage that they protect to the tree as natural monument.

  • Overindebtedness and discharge in the consumer bankruptcy

    • Abstract: Resumen: El trabajo plantea un análisis crítico de la regla de exoneración legal de los saldos insolutos en el procedimiento concursal de una persona deudora. La configuración actual de la regla es excesivamente generosa y las reacciones “correctivas” de autoridades, tanto judiciales como administrativas, tampoco han logrado una solución razonable. En ese escenario, las bases para una reconstrucción del discharge son la comprensión, por una parte, del sobreendeudamiento como un problema social y, por otra parte, de la exoneración legal de los saldos insolutos como una regla redistributiva cuya finalidad es la tutela preferente del consumidor de buena fe, como lo muestra el derecho comparado. Así entendido, el discharge no sólo modifica la función del procedimiento concursal, sino también afecta el sistema de derecho de las obligaciones. : This paper analyses critically the discharge rule in the consumer bankruptcy procedure. The current text is overly generous and the “remedial” actions taken by judicial and administrative authorities have been unsatisfactory. Within this context, the basis for rebuild the discharge rule are the understanding, on the one hand, of overindebtedness as a social problem and, on the other hand, the discharge as a redistributive rule that its ultimate goal is to protect the honest consumer, as shown by the comparative law analysis. Seen in this light, the discharge not only modifies the function of the insolvency procedure, but also alters the law of obligation system.
       
  • Collective bargaining, autonomy and legislative autonomy

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este artículo estudia dos de los más conocidos sistemas de abstención legislativa en materia sindical. El caso de Uruguay y de Italia, analizando sus caracteres y desafíos principales, para presentar algunas propuestas acerca del modo más adecuado de articulación entre ley y autonomía en el contexto de los sistemas sindicales de América Latina. : This paper studies two of the most well known systems of legislative abstention in freedom of association matters.

  • Body, gender and law

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este trabajo examina las relaciones existentes entre cuerpo, subjetividad y poder para evidenciar sus vínculos recíprocos. Uno de los propósitos del trabajo es mostrar que múltiples categorías jurídicas descansan sobre significados que remiten a un imaginario social de género. Así es posible que esferas regulativas aparentemente estancas sean unificadas alrededor de una matriz común de sentido y sirvan a funciones ideológicas de estabilización del sistema sexo-género. El trabajo postula que la diferencia sexual atraviesa el sistema jurídico singularizando a las mujeres como una identidad subalterna, lo cual repercute, a su vez, en el tratamiento jurídico de otros cuerpos, que son feminizados. También argumenta que esta tecnología biopolítica tiene su sede en la regulación jurídica de la familia y desde ahí irradia sus efectos al resto del sistema. : This paper tries to elucidate the existing relations between body, subjectivity and power demonstrate their reciprocal links. One of the purposes of the work is to show that multiple legal categories rest on meanings that refer to a social imaginary of gender. Thus it is possible that apparently sealed regulatory spheres are unified around a common matrix of meaning and serve ideological functions of stabilization of the sex-gender system. In it, the author postules that the sexual difference goes through the legal system singling out women as a subaltern identity, which in turn affects the legal treatment of other bodies, which result feminized. It is also argued that this biopolitical technology is based on the legal regulation of families and from there irradiates its effects to the rest of the system.
       
  • For a tort liability of the Media which is consistent with the risk of
           spreading false news concerning public persons

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este artículo postula que los Medios de comunicación deberían responder del daño causado a la honra de personas públicas sólo si éste emana de un ejercicio extremadamente abusivo de su libertad de expresión, esto es, mediante la publicación de información falsa a sabiendas, con indiferencia temeraria hacia su veracidad o culpa lata. : This article argues that the media should be liable for harm caused to the public persons’ reputation only if it derives from an extremely abusive exercise of their freedom of speech, that is, through the publication of information with knowledge of its falsity, with reckless disregard of its truthfulness or with gross negligence.
       
  • Normative powers of the colombian Constitutional Court

    • Abstract: Resumen: La doctrina o regla del precedente judicial supone que los jueces tienen el poder normativo de crear, modificar o derogar normas jurídicas. En ese contexto, el presente trabajo se propone explicar los tipos de poderes normativos que tiene la Corte Constitucional colombiana y, en consecuencia, señalar las clases de normas que crea este tribunal. Primero, se señala en qué sentido se puede afirmar que los jueces crean normas jurídicas y se precisan dos modelos al respecto: el modelo common law y el modelo legislativo. Luego se analizan los diferentes poderes normativos que ejerce la Corte Constitucional colombiana. La principal conclusión del trabajo es que las explicaciones que limitan el estudio del precedente a la noción de ratio decidendi tienen una insuficiente capacidad explicativa y justificativa. : The judicial precedent doctrine supposes that judges have the normative power to create, modify and derogate rules. This paper characterizes the different types of powers that the Colombian Constitutional Court exercises by examining the kinds of general and rules it makes. The work concludes that, while the Constitutional Court does indeed exercise several kinds of normative powers to create, modify and derogate rules that are both general and , any theoretical explanation of judicial precedent doctrine that merely limits its scope to ratio decidendi will necessarily be lacking in explanatory power and ultimately fail to provide the doctrine a sound justification.
       
  • The restitution of higher earnings in the efficient breach of contract: an
           answer from the chilean law of contracts

    • Abstract: Resumen: En este trabajo analizaremos los alcances del denominado incumplimiento eficiente, con el fin de determinar si en estos casos es factible que de conformidad al derecho chileno el acreedor obtenga la restitución de las ganancias experimentadas por el deudor; o si, por el contrario, el acreedor sólo puede ejercer los derechos o remedios que la ley le confiere derivados de tal incumplimiento. : In this paper, we discuss the scope of so-called efficient breach, in order to determine whether it is feasible that under Chilean law the creditor to obtain restitution of profits experienced by the debtor in these cases, or whether, on the contrary, creditor may only exercise the rights or remedies that the law gives arising from breach.
       
  • Constitutional opening to the International Human Rights Law in a new
           Constitution

    • Abstract: Resumen: El artículo presenta una propuesta respecto a cual debería ser la cláusula de apertura constitucional al Derecho Internacional de los Derechos Humanos, en una nueva Constitución en Chile. Para realizar esta propuesta, la autora se refiere al contexto actual de la relación entre el Derecho Internacional de los Derechos Humanos y el derecho interno, analizando los diferentes modelos de apertura constitucional y evidenciando los problemas que en esta materia presenta la Constitución chilena de 1980 (artículo 5º de la Constitución Política). Se analizan específicamente las experiencias mexicana y española, presentando argumentos para sostener que la cláusula de interpretación conforme de estas Constituciones, así como la incorporación explícita del principio pro persona, son una forma adecuada de resolver la complejidad de la relación entre el Derecho Internacional de los Derechos Humanos y el derecho interno chileno. : The article presents a proposal for a constitutional opening clause to the International Human Rights Law in a new Constitution. In order to make this proposal, the author refers to the current context of the relationship between International Human Rights Law and the domestic law, analyzing the different models of constitutional opening and highlighting the problems presented in this matter by the 1980 Chilean Constitution (Article 5). The Mexican and Spanish experiences are analyzed specifically, presenting arguments to maintain that the clause of conforming interpretation of these Constitutions, as well as the explicit incorporation of the pro person principle, are an adequate way of solving the complexity of the relation between the International Human Rights law and Chilean domestic law.
       
  • Criminal confiscation in American legislation as a comparative view in
           contrast with the Project for a New Criminal Code

    • Abstract: Resumen: El presente trabajo tiene por finalidad cotejar la regulación del comiso en las disposiciones penales vigentes y en lo dispuesto por el Proyecto de Nuevo Código Penal (2014), frente a la normativa y recepción jurisprudencial estadounidense sobre dicha materia. Este ejercicio ofrece reflexiones e ideas para un futuro sistema de comiso en Chile, esperando contribuir a esclarecer los principales problemas que presenta una legislación sobre comiso y a qué criterios se debe atender para darles una correcta respuesta. : This article aims to compare the regulation on confiscation in the existing law and in the rules of the Project for a New Criminal Code (2014) in contrast with the American regulation and case law on that matter. This exercise presents reflections and ideas for future confiscation legislation in Chile, hoping to contribute to make clear the main problems that confiscation laws have and which are the criteria that should be considered to solve them.
       
  • The emergence of jus sanguini as a general criterion for assigning
           citizenship. Some considerations about its apparition

    • Abstract: Resumen: Hasta comienzos del siglo XIX, el jus soli era el modo usual para adquirir la nacionalidad en los diversos estados de Europa. Sus orígenes, en último término generados durante la Edad Media por los glosadores y comentaristas, se encontraban interconectados con la noción de soberanía. Su eficiencia era tal que la existencia de personas sin estado en los regímenes políticos de Europa era casi imposible. Con la dictación del Code Napoléon se introdujo el jus sanguini como criterio principal para atribuir nacionalidad. Su establecimiento se enfrentó a toda la tradición jurídica Occidental e incluso a los deseos personales de Napoléon. Esto obliga a interrogarse acerca de los motivos que tuvo la comisión codificadora para imponer un criterio tan inusual en dicha época. Creemos que en la base de tal medida se encuentran las primeras obras que establecieron los fundamentos de la pseudo ciencia conocida como racismo científico. : Until the beginning of the 19th century, jus soli was the standard means to acquire citizenship in most European states. It’s origins- ultimately developed by the glossators of the middle age- were interconnected with the notion of sovereignty. It’s level of efficiency was such, that there was virtually no stateless people in Europe. With the enactment of the Code Napoléon the jus sanguini was introduced as the main device to attribute citizenship. This innovation was introduced against the standards of Western legal tradition and even against Napoléon’s own wishes. This odd fact begs for an explanation regarding the motifs the Commission had to enact such an unusual criterion at the time. We think that at the very base of it, we can find the first works of a pseudo-science which came to be known as scientific racism.
       
  • The principle of proportionality by the German Federal Constitutional
           Court: beyond Alexy

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este trabajo persigue mostrar que la proporcionalidad empleada por el Tribunal Constitucional Federal alemán, a partir de las sentencias divulgadas por los autores, no recepciona los supuestos ni la modalidad operativa, propuesta por Robert Alexy, promovida por buena parte de sus seguidores en Chile, respecto de la aplicación del referido estándar de adjudicación constitucional. : This paper aims to exhibit that the proportionality employed by the German Federal Constitutional Court does, from the judgements most commonly known, not receive the assumptions nor the modality proposed by Robert Alexy, supported by many of its followers in Chile, regarding the application of the mentioned standard of constitutional adjudication.
       
  • The environmental judicial review procedure’s precariousness

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este trabajo sostiene que el contencioso-administrativo de la Ley Nº 20.600 es un procedimiento “sumarísimo”, cuya precariedad genera dos consecuencias negativas: limita tanto el contradictorio de las partes en el juicio como las facultades revisoras del tribunal ambiental. Esto último, pese a ser un tribunal altamente especializado. : This Article contends that the judicial review procedure established in Law Nº 20.600 is a summary trial, which precariousness generates two negative consequences. First, it limits the adversarial system. Second, it limits the environmental court’s power to review, even though it is a highly-specialized court.
       
  • Mandatory mediation in the field of commercial and civil conflicts in
           Chile. An approach of lege ferenda

    • Abstract: Resumen: El presente trabajo trata sobre la mediación obligatoria en asuntos comerciales y civil-patrimoniales en el ordenamiento jurídico chileno. Se analiza su incardinación en el sistema constitucional vigente y se revisan los distintos modelos comparados, que contemplan el deber de colaboración de las partes, con énfasis en el sistema de Court-annexed mediation. Se incorporan datos originales de muestreo estadístico, para definir las bases del modelo a instaurar en Chile. : This paper deals about compulsory mediation in commercial and civil-patrimonial matters in the Chilean legal system. It’s analized its incardination in the current constitutional system and it’s revised the different compared models, that contemplate the duty of collaboration of the parties, with emphasis in the Court-annexed mediation system. Original statistical sampling data are incorporated to define the basis of the model to be established in Chile.
       
  • The service contract as a general category for Chilean Law. Its content
           and distinctive features

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este trabajo estudia el contrato de servicios y propone una noción como categoría general para el derecho chileno. Asimismo, examina sus características distintivas. Se busca contribuir a la configuración de su régimen jurídico, necesario por la falta de una disciplina legal especialmente dedicada a esta figura. : The aim of this paper is to study the services contract and to propose a definition for it, which works as a general category for Chilean law. Furthermore, the paper examines distinctive features of the contract under analysis. The general goal of this work is to contribute to the shape of its legal regime. This is necessary due to the lack of a legal discipline especially formulated for this figure.

  • The presumption of innocence as rule of judgment and the standard of proof
           of the reasonable doubt in the criminal procedure. A reading from Colombia
           and Chile

    • Abstract: Resumen: En este trabajo se pretende mostrar la relación del estándar de prueba en el proceso penal para dictar sentencia condenatoria con la presunción de inocencia como regla probatoria y de juicio. A partir de reconocer el trasplante jurídico de un estándar probatorio del sistema de common law, aplicado por jurados que no tienen deber de motivación, se plantea como tesis la necesidad de avanzar hacia una mayor objetividad del estándar de prueba en un sistema continental, lo que tiene directa relación con la necesaria motivación de la sentencia judicial, en especial desde el juicio de valoración probatorio que permita alcanzar ese grado de conocimiento para condenar (más allá de toda duda razonable) y, en consecuencia, desvirtuar la presunción de inocencia (como regla de juicio). : This paper intends to show the relationship of the standard of proof in the criminal process to issue a condemnatory sentence with the presumption of innocence as a probative and trial rule. From recognizing the legal transplant of a standard of evidence of the common law system, applied by juries that have no duty of motivation, the thesis is posed as the need to move towards a greater objectivity of the proof standard in a continental system, which is directly related to the necessary motivation of the judicial decision, especially from the trial assessment trial that allows reaching that degree of knowledge to condemn (beyond a reasonable doubt) and, consequently, distort the presumption of innocence (as a rule of judgement).
       
  • Offenses committed in the electoral processes: considerations on its
           foundations and systematization

    • Abstract: Resumen: La presente contribución busca ofrecer una panorámica sobre los principales caracteres bajo los cuales se suele configurar la regulación de los delitos asociados al desarrollo de los procesos electorales. El tratamiento se contextualiza en la alta preocupación que hoy en día detentan los actos de corrupción. Básicamente procura dar cuenta de cómo impactan dichos caracteres (asociados a una regulación amplia, heterogénea, casuística y dispersa) en su escasa aplicación y en la baja atención que doctrina y jurisprudencia les suelen brindar. Sobre esa base, se ofrece una perspectiva crítica centrada en el tratamiento del bien jurídico protegido y de su estructura de injusto, con el objeto de extraer algunas consideraciones dogmáticas y político criminales fundamentales. Entre ellas, destacan las implicancias en materia concursal y en su conceptualización como forma de corrupción. : This contribution seeks to provide an overview of the main characteristics of crimes usually associated with the development of electoral processes. The approach is based on the high concern that acts of corruption provoke. Basically the paper seeks to account for how these characteristics impact (associated with a broad, heterogeneous, casuistic and dispersed regulation) its limited application and the low importance that doctrine and jurisprudence usually provide. On this basis, we offer a critical perspective focused on the treatment of the protected legal interest and its unjust structure, in order to extract some fundamental criminal and political considerations. Among them, the implications in concurrent offences matters and in their conceptualization as a form of corruption, stand out.
       
  • La tutela del arrendatario frente a las turbaciones jurídicas en el
           arrendamiento de inmuebles

    • Abstract: Resumen: La falta de conformidad jurídica es un asunto escasamente estudiado respecto del contrato de arrendamiento en Chile. Una vez que se le presta suficiente atención, se descubre que se encuentra organizado a través de garantías (evicción y vicios) y normas de expiración del contrato. El objetivo de este trabajo consiste en presentar la forma en que ambos -garantías y terminación- se relacionan con la tutela del arrendatario. Confiamos en que, al hacerlo, a la vez mostremos que una tutela tan fragmentaria resulta inadecuada para la protección del arrendatario. : Lack of conformity for legal reason is a scarcely studied matter regarding lease contract in Chile. Once we pay enough attention it comes clear that the issue is organized through the discipline of warranties (eviction and vices) and termination of contract. The aim of this work is, on the one hand, presents the way both -warranties and termination get related to the protection of the leasee and, on the other hands, cast some doubts about the adequacy of such a fragmented system of protection. In the end we suggest a conception of breach wide and unitary must be the answer.
