Spanish term or phrase: es un modelo a seguir para el proceso penal en la Argentina
There are several reasons why I would like to pursue graduate studies in the United States. First, the country is well known for its fight against corruption; second, its adversarial criminal procedure system –regarding its respect of constitutional principles- es un modelo a seguir para el proceso penal en la Argentina, especially considering that our Constitution is inspired on the United States’.


Note: I don´t care if the order of the sentence is changed. I would like to construct it so as to show the correct idea. Thanks.

English translation:represents a model for the penal process...
Explanation:
anti-corruption stance

second, its adversarial criminal procedures system (with its underlying respect for constitutional principles), represents a model for the penal process in Argentina, and particularly since the latter's Constitution was inspired by that of the United States’.


The sentence is a bit lengthy but just about OK, given the limited possibilities for shortening it within the context of your 'list' I have put ( ) to deal with this problem, which you may remove if preferable

I don't recommend 'role model'becuase this refers to a person (role is the part that a person acts) and cannot represent a system.

Other samll changes made to improve the discourse, etc.

Explanation:
Heeey! What's up? You all forgot about role model. It is the most direct and genuine translation of "el modelo a seguir"

a model to be followed/emulated by criminal proceedings in Argentina


Explanation:
in this context, "penal" would be translated as "criminal."
Yes, "penal" exists in English, butis used as in "Penal Code."
Here, it is a transliteration that SOUNDS like a translated text.
