    Dear Madam or Sir,

    I am the author of an Inter-American Law Review article published in 2008: The Failed Invigoration of Argentina’s Constitution, 39 U. Miami Inter-Am. L. Rev. 409.
    The article was uploaded to Westlaw and Lexis with a major editorial error on footnote 469, which reads “(extra space here to be deleted) Barrionuevo, supra note 406.”

    Would it be possible for the current editors of the journal to please rectify this problem on Westlaw and Lexis? In addition, could you please email me a PDF version of the article to upload onto SSRN?

    With best regards,

    Mugambi Jouet

    I misplaced my only copy of an article that I wrote for the Inter-American Law Review with Professor McGee. The article was entitled The Deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon: Law, Politics and International Cooperation and was published in 1990.

    Is possible for me to get a pdf copy? The article would be for my personal use only (i.e. to show my kids) and would not be reposted anywhere. Thanks in advance, Kurt Zimmerman (kzimmerman@caltrout.org).
