Rule of Law Program (Russian Judges)

Hosted during October of 2002, the Rule of Law Program for Russian judges brought five Russian judges to Great Falls under the Open World Program for Civic Delegations. With the support of the Cascade County Bar Association, the judges received a briefing on state and federal legal system, observed a federal court proceeding, and attended a hearing of the Montana Supreme Court in Helena, the state capital. Judge Robert Holter, retired District Court Judge, currently U.S. Magistrate Judge in Great Falls mentored the judges during their stay.
