Six Russian judges will tour Las Vegas’ courthouses next week to get a look at how American justice functions.
The judges will visit the Lloyd D. George U.S. Federal Courthouse, the Clark County Regional Justice Center and Family Court through the Open World, Rule of Law Program.
Mayor Carolyn Goodman will welcome the delegation to Las Vegas at 9 a.m. Monday at the Lloyd D. George Courthouse (courtroom 6B), 333 Las Vegas Blvd. S. At 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, Apr. 25, the delegation will visit the Eighth Judicial District Court at the Regional Justice Center, 200 Lewis Ave. The visiting judges will be presented with ceremonial gavels before they begin shadowing District Court judges to get a firsthand look at the busiest court in Nevada.
The Open World, Rule of Law Program is bringing the judges for a week-long immersion into the U.S. justice system. From Apr. 21-27, the Russian judicial delegation will be led by Senior United States District Judge Lloyd D. George in cooperation with the Eighth Judicial District Court, Rotary Clubs of Southern Nevada, the U.S. Marshals and the Nevada Bar Association on a rigorous schedule that will provide an inside look at the American legal system.
