A Andres at the service of people.
We are A Andres and specialized professionals dedicated to studying, disseminating and facilitating the understanding of the different social actors regarding how technological innovation affects legal science and how the latter should approach the new realities with respect for the fundamental rights of people in the context of a social and democratic State of Law.
WHO WE ARE
The A Andres is a private law corporation, non-profit and financed by its own members; it was established in December 2009 and is composed mainly of university professors and highly specialized professionals distributed throughout the country who are dedicated to promoting the proper understanding of the technological phenomenon in its interrelation with the legal field.
WHAT WE DO
Our work, usually of a voluntary nature, ranges from the extension of knowledge through training events open to the public, through the integration of commissions and committees of experts in both the public and private spheres; the study of problems and the proposal of solutions in cases in which technological reality conflicts with legal regulation, support in the drafting of proposals for laws and decrees and, exceptionally, we train entities that require specialized support to face contingencies or projects.
WHAT WE DO NOT DO
As a general rule, the Institute does not carry out strategic litigation or engage in political or social activism in technological matters; we do not act or provide lobbying services and we do not carry out actions that compromise our independence: what we like is to investigate, study and publicly disseminate knowledge in search of the greatest social benefit, always with the defence of people’s fundamental rights and the development of democracy as a goal.
