Mongolian judges visiting the “City of Oaks”

Mongolian judges with Judge Allyson K DuncanInternational Focus in partnership with US Circuit Judge Allyson Duncan had the honor of hosting a delegation of Judges, Law professors, and a Legal Researcher to Raleigh for the last week of July for a seminar on the Rule of Law.

The group also visited Wilmington NC to tour a US Courthouse and Wrightsville Beach. Participants in the group gained extensive knowledge of the state and federal court system and how they operate through each of their meetings.

The group came to the United States as participants in the Open World Leadership program. The program works with Eurasian countries to develop a professional network of leaders who gain significant first-hand experience with US democratic and accountable government system. During their visit delegates were able to interface directly with Magistrates, State Supreme Court Judge Paul Newby, US District Judge James Dever, Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, Congressman George Holding, and US Circuit Judge Allyson Duncan.
