How to Make Friends
and Do Business in Cuba
Cuba is unique. Like other Caribbean nations, Cuba has fabulous parks, villages, and towns. The capital of Cuba, Havana, is a fascinating city, full of historic and artistic treasures. But unlike other islands in the region, Cuba has been isolated from the United States, its powerful neighbor to the north, and has developed a special society.
Business & Investment
Our workshops cover Cuban law as it relates to business entities, joint ventures, property, NGOs, nonprofits, and foreign investment. What opportunities are opened by the new Cuban constitution? We will also examine environmental protection and regulation of development projects.
University of Havana
Workshops are held at the prestigious University of Havana. One of the oldest universities in the Americas — and Cuba's oldest—it was founded in 1728 and served as the intellectual headquarters for the Cuban Revolution. We will tour the beautiful campus and Law School and engage with faculty and students.
Governance in Cuba
Learn about the role of the city, province and People’s Assembly in making and implementing law, policy, and regulations. Examine individual liberties, notions of human rights, criminal law, and rights of defendants.
Visit Cuban Courts and legal offices, the University of Havana Law School, and the Cuba Bar Association.
