U. S. District Court Judge Harvey Schlesinger and six judges from Tartarstan, Russia will visit our campus on March 28, 2011. They will be visiting the school as part of the Open World program. This the fourth year that a group of foreign judges have visited our school. The Open World Program enables emerging leaders from Russia and other Eurasian countries to experience American democracy and civil society in action. It is the first and only exchange program in the U.S. legislative branch. Congress established the program in 1999 following discussions among Librarian of Congress James H. Billington and members of Congress led by Senator Ted Stevens (AK) on ways to increase U.S.-Russian understanding and to expose Russian leaders to American democratic and economic institutions.
