U.S. Judicial System: Selected Websites

On Thursday, the UW law school hosted a group of international visitors who are in the U.S. as part of the State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program and hosted in Seattle by the World Affairs Council.

The 16 visitors were lawyers, government officials, and judges from 15 countries, interested in all aspects of the U.S. judicial system. On Friday they were going to the Seattle Immigration Court and to a King County Drug Diversion Court.

It was an interesting group – coming from places as diverse as Bhutan and Israel, Tunisia and the India – and I enjoyed talking with them about legal education and our legal system.

The group had asked for information about LexisNexis and about sources for continuing their study of the U.S. judicial system once their visit to the U.S. is over. So during my time with them I gave them a demo and showed them a variety of sites they might find helpful. Trial ad folks might also find the sites useful, so here's the guide we posted for the visitors: U.S. Judicial System: Selected Websites.
