teaching and training the World

As a consultant to the U.S. State Department, I have forged connections and relationships with judges, attorneys, and law enforcement from all over the world.  I have developed and taught courses on Model Law, CyberCrime, Gender Issues, and Trial Advocacy skills in the Criminal Justice System to high ranking justice officials from Africa, the Caribbean, South America, Central America, Asia, and the Middle East.  I have trained premier individuals in law enforcement and criminal justice systems from over 32 countries all over the world. 

"She is a great educator and a great worker who shows her work ethic through her many different efforts. I know her experience and skill as a Professor translates into her work as an attorney and I would recommend her to anyone."

In 2012, I was chosen to lead a non-governmental organization in the West Bank, Palestine mentoring local criminal defense lawyers and setting up a working indigent criminal defense system.  I conducted court observations throughout the West Bank, implemented specialized training programs on trial skills and legal writing, and organized mock trial courtroom programs.

In 2013-2014, I returned to the Middle East to assist in creating and launching specialized legal clinics in several law schools.  These programs focused on providing law students with practical training and hands-on experience handling cases. 

In 2016, I worked as a legal training specialist with Lawyers without Borders.  I developed training course on trial advocacy and case development for attorneys in Myanmar.
