NYSACDL Diplomacy!

Recently, NYSACDL was asked by the US Department of State for volunteers to meet with a group of lawyers from China here on the first leg of a cultural program. We thank First Vice President John S. Wallenstein, Vice President Alice Fontier and Secretary Arnold Levine who volunteered to meet with the group. The Chinese lawyers were interested in learning about our criminal justice system and NYSACDL. They met at the US Mission to the United Nations, and spent a very lively and productive two hours fielding questions about defendants’ rights, Brady, and primarily the operation of the public defense system. Their responses were well received, and we thank the Department of State for arranging our participation!
