After spending time in Utah learning about democracy and sound legal principles, a group of 11 interns has returned home to Moldova to put into practice what they gleaned from their three-week internship.
During their time in the United States — which was sponsored by The Leavitt Institute for International Development (TLI) — the group of law students, lawyers, and aspiring judges visited a number of government and civic institutions. This included the Utah County Commission, Kirton McConkie law firm, state and federal courtrooms, The Salt Lake Tribune, and KUTV channel 2.
The culminating event of the internship involved TLI’s annual social August 18 in Provo. Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes was the keynote speaker. Each intern had the chance to meet Reyes as well as other practicing attorneys in the Utah area.
