Russian Open World Group Visits NH

By:

NHBA-CLE Director Jo Hinnendael tells Russian delegates about NHís continuing legal education requirement and the NH Barís Continuing Legal Education programs.

Judges and attorneys from Vologda, Russia made their way to New Hampshire recently to participate in the Open World Leadership Center exchange program, sponsored by the US Congress and designed to build mutual understanding between emerging political and civic leaders of participating countries and their US counterparts.

The visit was coordinated by the New Hampshire/Vologda Rule of Law Partnership Committee, chaired by NH Superior Court Judge Kathleen McGuire. The program, under the auspices of the NH Judicial Branch with funding mostly from federal sources, has been underway for 10 years, with visits to Russia and New Hampshire occurring each year, and several programs ongoing.

Jurists Andrey Batov, Lyubov Bileva, Sergey Fokichev, Sergey Khlopushin, Sergey Nikulin, Lyubov Ovstina, Lyudmila Yagodina, Eduard Zaynak spent seven days in the state to examine the relationship between the media and the courts/legal system. While they were here, the delegates met with representatives of the NH Bar Association, the Supreme Court, the NH Attorney Generalís Office, and a host of interested attorneys, judges and journalists from the area.

At the NH Bar Center, the delegates were taken on a tour of the facility and were given presentations about what the NH Bar does for its members and how it deals with issuing information to members as well as to the public. This was followed by a roundtable discussion between the NHBA International Law Section members, Russian delegates and other interested parties, in which topics ranged from the recent election of Dmitri Medvyedev to the means the courts are using to stamp out corruption in the Russian federal courts.
