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

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with CILS has been one of the most satisfying and rewarding of my adult years. I have practiced law for 35 years, and about 5 years ago, at a time when my interest in law was waning, I discovered CILS. As a result, I have had wonderful travel experiences, I have taught and interacted with many lawyers and law students throughout Eastern Europe, I have made many wonderful friends, and as a result of my CILS experiences I've felt rejuvenated in my law practice. CILS has exposed me to different systems of law and legal ideology, and it has been an enlightening experience to be able to exchange ideas about law with lawyers and law students everywhere I've taught. Through CILS I have taught in Hungary, Slovakia, and Lithuania, and look forward to my next experience in Kosovo in the Spring of 2010. CILS has helped to open my eyes to a whole new world, and has also helped to expose students and faculty to the American legal system. It has been a wonderful experience for everyone.

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

meeting foreign lawyers and law students, and learning about their legal systems
