What’s next for the alleged plagiarism case by Yasmin Esquivel?

In accordance with the law of the University, the matter on the alleged plagiarism of thesis Minister of the Supreme Court of the Country (SCJN) Yasmin Esquivel must reach the degree university courtThe body in charge of determining whether the matter warrants a sanction and what it would be.

However, the first vetting process is being done by the Academic and Scientific Integrity Committee Aragon Faculty of Higher Studies, Where Minister is a graduate, his thesis after and another student’s thesis submitted a year before his had a “high degree of overlap”, as determined by the university’s General Directorate of Library and Digital Information Services.

As part of the process, the integrity committee of the FES Aragon called on all those involved in the case to appear by Thursday, December 29: Minister Esquivel; Thesis advisor, Martha Rodriguez; Synod in their professional examination to the former student author of the first registered thesis.

After listening to everyone’s arguments, you should analyze the evidence and the expert opinion of the thesis. Yasmin Esquivel, registered in 1987, and that edgar ulis baezPresented in 1986, both with the same title “Ineffectiveness of unions in reliable workers of article 123 section A”, as entered in UNAM’s registry of theses.

However, before any resolution is made, the committee must give a hearing to the University Tribunal, the collegial body charged with hearing and deciding on violations of university law, allegedly committed by academic staff or students of UNAM.
