For the fifth consecutive year, Ukrainian judges will visit the Indiana Supreme Court to learn about the U.S. government. The five judges will be in Indianapolis and Noblesville Nov. 14-21, and will attend an oral argument at the high court, view criminal and civil proceedings, visit the re-entry educational facility in Plainfield, and exchange information with the Division of State Court Administration and the Indiana Judicial Center.

They will also meet with Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, Marion Superior Judge Gerald S. Zore, and Hamilton Superior Magistrate Judge William Greenaway.

The judges, their facilitator, and two interpreters are participants in the Open World Program, a nonpartisan initiative of the U.S. Congress to build mutual understanding between emerging political and civic leaders of participating countries.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
