Classroom 3

Russian law is a unique blend of civil and common law, with some uniquely socialist features.  Oregon’s Chief Justice often travels to The Russian Federation to help in their legal reforms.  Chief Justice DeMuniz will be speaking on how the Russian legal system differs from ours, and what changes they have made since the breakup of the U.S.S.R.
