Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Six delegates from the Ukraine’s legal community will be in Indianapolis through Saturday to learn about the American legal system by observing court hearings and meeting with members of the legal community, as well as participating in cultural activities.

The Open World Leadership Center is funding the visit, and the Russian American Rule of Law Consortium, a group of legal communities that seeks to build legal institutions by hosting delegations from Russia, Ukraine and other former Soviet republics who study various facets of the U.S. legal system, is administering the visit.

The Indiana Attorney General’s Office is hosting the delegates, and delegates will be staying with volunteers in their homes.

Delegates will be able to observe the legal system first hand, including oral arguments at the Indiana Supreme Court, and visits to the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society, the Marion Superior Court, the Indianapolis Bar Association and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s Arrestee Processing Center.

In addition to visits to courts and legal organizations, members of the Attorney General’s staff, including Solicitor General Thomas M. Fisher; Chief Deputy Attorney General Gary Secrest; and Deputy Attorney General Abigail Kuzma, chief counsel of the Consumer Protection Division; and congressional staff from the offices of both U.S. Senator Richard Lugar and Congressman Steve Buyer will meet with the delegates. Delegates will also meet with Indiana senators.

The Open World program, founded by Congress in 1999, will also fund cultural experiences for the delegates, including visits to the Indiana State Museum, Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art, an Indiana Ice hockey game, the Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway, and other cultural attractions in Indianapolis.

A more in-depth look at this visit will be in the Oct. 27, 2010, edition of Indiana Lawyer.

  2. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  3. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  4. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  5. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.
