Working in cooperation with ABA accredited law schools from Maine to California, they have brought over 100 Russian law students to study for a year in the U.S. and then return to Russian to pursue their legal careers.

Taking place at the Sundial Beach Resort, registration will open at 11:30 a.m., followed by lunch at noon. The program will run from about 12:30 to 2 p.m., including a question-and-answer session.
