Students in the Central and Eastern European Law Program Meet with Dignitaries
Students in the law school's Central and Eastern European Law Program on the Dubrovnik Riviera, Croatia met at the end of July with former U.S. Ambassador William Montgomery (pictured top right), who spoke on the recent war, the arrest of the alleged war criminal, Radovan Karadžić, and diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Eastern Europe.
Students also were invited to visit the Appellate Court in Dubrovnik where they met with the Chief Judge of the Court, Josita Begović (pictured bottom right) and two other district court judges. Additionally, students met with Mr. Davor Štern, former Minister of the Economy (and oil expert and former director of INA, the Croatian oil company) who spoke about the oil industry, relations with Russia, corruption in Eastern Europe, and the Eastern European economy. The program is under the direction of Professor Jennifer Drobac.
