Prof. Barbara Barron Teaches Trial Advocacy Teacher Training Course in Macedonia
Barbara S. Barron taught a trial advocacy teacher training course for the Department of State and Justice Department in Macedonia on January 23-26, 2012. The teacher training course is part of an integrated, comprehensive effort to introduce American style trial advocacy skills to the Macedonian criminal justice system. Macedonia is transitioning from an inquisitorial to adversarial system in Fall 2012. In anticipation of that transition and anticipated implementation of a new Criminal Procedure Code, Macedonian judges and prosecutors nationwide participated in the course in order to learn how to teach trial advocacy skills to their colleagues. The judges and prosecutors will then conduct American style trial advocacy courses throughout the country.
