Russian lawyers in Indy to learn legal system

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Five Russian lawyers currently are visiting Indianapolis to learn about United States' legal issues and legal system. The attorneys arrived Friday and have already visited Marion County's adult processing center and juvenile detention center, and have received an introduction to the U.S. legal system from Marion Superior Judge David Dreyer.

This morning, the attorneys visited the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana and the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic. In the afternoon, they attended a roundtable discussion with international attorneys, including former anti-corruption and anti-terrorist prosecutors at Barnes & Thornburg in Indianapolis.

Tomorrow, the Russian lawyers will visit the U.S. Attorney's Office in Indianapolis, Marion County Prosecutor's Office, and will meet with Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard and Indiana Inspector General David Thomas.

The attorneys also have visited cultural and community activities in the state including the Indianapolis Museum of Art and Oliver Winery in Bloomington.

The attorneys are visiting the city as a part of the Open World Program, which is designed to enhance understanding and capabilities for cooperation between the U.S. and countries of Eurasia and the Baltic states by developing a network of leaders in the region who have gained significant, firsthand exposure to America's democratic, accountable government and free-market system. The Rotary Club of Indianapolis is the attorneys' local host.

  1. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
