Center for the Administration of Justice
In 1984, Professor Salas was named director of the Center for the Administration of Justice (CAJ) at FIU. Funding agencies have awarded over $60 million dollars to CAJ since 1984. CAJ has been the recipient of major grants from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for projects in Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, and Venezuela. In addition to USAID work, other international donors have relied on CAJ's expertise.
