FERNANDEZ FERNANDEZ, Vicente e SAMANIEGO BEHAR, Nitza. The Trial of Amparo: its History and the Future of this Constitutional Protection in Mexico [A Constitutional Protection Peculiar to Mexico]. Rev. IUS [online]. 2011, vol.5, n.27, pp. 173-200. ISSN 1870-2147.
The Amparo Trial has been -and continues to be- the most efficient way that the people have to defend themselves from government acts. In this paper we will conduct a historical review that shows the evolution of this type of control of the constitutionality of the acting of the Mexican State, until we reach present day, describing the rules of procedure, principles and the effects of the sentences from the Amparo Trial. Finally, the changes that have recently happened are analyzed, pursuing a new form of Amparo Trial in which the accumulated mistakes are corrected, trying to increase its efficiency and extent its protection to the governed people, that due to a great number of formalities, are sometimes left without protection. In this way, we analyze the constitutional amendment from December 2010 and the new Amparo Law proposed and presented to the National Congress in 2011.
