Law Day Celebration Draws International Students
High school students from Bosnia
and Herzegovina joined D.C.
and Maryland students in a courtroom
simulation at the U.S. District Court for
the District of Columbia to learn more
about the Constitutional principles
celebrated on Law Day. Eighteen
students from various regions of
Bosnia and Herzegovina are visiting
the United States as part of a Youth
Leadership Program funded by the
U.S. Department of State. In addition
to in-home stays with U.S. families,
they participated in a three-part Civic
Education and Leadership Institute at
Willamette University. The program
culminated in a trip to Washington, DC,
where their visit coincided with Law Day
events at the D.C. courthouse.
