  • Harvard Law School 11 Oxford St Cambridge, MA, 02138 Estados Unidos (map)

VERY EXCITING AND PROMISING moment as Harvard Law School is about to welcome our founder and leading partner,  Herman Manuel Duarte Iraheta, to give the conference about: Central America’s latest challenge on the same-sex marriage ban: the case of El Salvador

Mr Duarte´s publication on linkedin has over FIFTEEN THOUSAND views and has been recommended by high profile business man such as Dr. Andreas Laustsen and Mr. Emerson Spartz, both highlighted by FORBES Magazine in their "30 under 30".

Nothing in life is by chance. Nothing.

On march 21 of 2017, Harvard's faculty of law virtual calendar marked a multitude of events, but it was curious that at 1 of clock there would be two events that correspond to gender and specie: "In praise of litigation" in which Harvard's alumni, now profesor of the University of Vermont, Prof. Alexandra Lahev presented her book, in which she speaks about how in a constitutional regime, litigation has a functional role for democracy.

Thus, the species inside gender was stablished with the exposition of how in Central America litigation is being used strategically to fight impunity: Central Américas latest Challenge to the Ban on Same Sex Marriage, marks a before and after for El Salvador. It's the first time a Salvadoran goes to the worlds most prestigious Law school, Harvard, to talk about a legal theory to its intelectual elite. All due to the experienced acquired  in Costa Rica.

Conference by Herman Duarte at Harvard Law School  due to the invitation of LAMBDA to speak on the latest challenge on the same sex marriage ban in El Salvador:


Herman has done something quite extraordinary. He has had the courage to challenge one of the most conservative elites in the world and also the leadership to build a diverse and progressive coalition to support this fight. His lawsuit is one of the few in Latin America that builds its arguments using data and facts. It not only shows that depriving LGBT communities of the right to get married is constitutionally wrong, but that doing it is not a good public policy too. I am convinced that scholars from all over the world will write about this lawsuit for many decades to come.
