The chapter focuses on current legislative policies on investment in Latin American countries, and the main characteristics and legal consequences of the investment arbitration claims with which these states have been confronted to date. It therefore provides a succinct historical overview of international investment and investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) in Latin America and outlines Latin American countries’ main complaints regarding the current ISDS system, which necessarily refer to their critical view of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). Moreover, the chapter takes a close look at the multifaceted legal opposition to ISDS in Latin American countries, and explores some initiatives that are currently providing inspiration for the future of investment dispute resolution in Latin America.

Chapter 11 concludes the section on practical concerns by focusing on issues concerning internal and external correspondence and memoranda. In many ways, these types of routine communications with colleagues, clients and other professional contacts are the most important types of writing for bilingual lawyers to master, since a badly written letter or legal analysis can create difficulties for a client or injure a professional working relationship. This chapter therefore discusses some standard conventions regarding legal writing in English- and Spanish-speaking jurisdictions. The text also includes a number of model documents to help readers appreciate the nuances of documents from different jurisdictions.
