Valentin Alsina was an Argentine lawyer and politician.
Alsina was born in Buenos Aires and studied law in Cordoba. He occupied diverse posts in government and also had a successful civil career as an advocate and professor of law at the University of Buenos Aires. Under the government of Juan Manuel de Rosas, he had to leave the country, as his liberal ideas did not please the dictator at all. From his refuge in Montevideo, he supported the opposition against de Rosas, both financially and through publications.
