Review for CILS Benefactors Inc., Steamboat Springs, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I taught in Kosice, Slovakia as part of the volunteer effort of CILS. It was one of the best professional experiences I've ever had. The students were excellent, the faculty and administration were wonderful colleagues for my short visit and I undoubtedly learned as much as I was able to teach. I asked to attend court one day and that proved to be a fascination, perhaps for all of us. It was difficult for them to persuade a judge to allow me to observe, but once I was there the judge warmed to the experience and we had a good exchange. I came away with more questions than I realized I had when I began--and I am still most interested in knowing how Slovakia and other "new" EU nations will incorporate this jurisprudence that is so different from their tradition.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the other CILS vounteers I met--talented people who love(d) practicing law and so thoroughly enjoyed the adventure of sharing that in a setting so foreign to us.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2007
