Professors Barbara Barron, Lawrence Kessler Conduct Skills Training Course in Russia

Professor Barbara S. Barron and Lawrence W. Kessler, the Richard J. Cardali Distinguished Professor of Trial Advocacy, conducted an innovative skills training course for lawyers from Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Leningrad District in Russia, from July 4-7, 2011.

The course, sponsored by Hofstra Law and ABA CEELI,  was held in Ershovo, Russia, just outside of Moscow.

Created by Professor Barron,  the course was designed to train the lawyers to teach American written advocacy skills as well as to teach sophisticated case theory analysis, the latter of which was the subject of a presentation by Professor Kessler.

In all, 20 people participated in the course.
