This piece examines the lack of rule of law in Mexico through an analysis of police and judicial reform efforts. After providing a historical overview of the development of Mexican policing and the judicial branch, it pinpoints shortcomings of reform operations in the justice sector. It suggests that without addressing corruption and informal procedures in those institutions, meaningful reform and true rule of law in Mexico will be unlikely. The piece then focuses on civil society's capacity to bolster justice reform and act as an agent of rule of law.
