Project Spotlight: Principles of the Law, Government Ethics

I recently had the opportunity to speak to various elected officials and higher-education personnel in the countries of Georgia and Kazakhstan. I was excited to tell them about the ALI Project on Ethics and that there will be suggested guidelines which will be applicable to any interested public official or government. The audience members were very interested to hear about this timely project. I am sure the project will be met with great interest not only in North America, but also around the globe. It is truly an honor for me to be working with this eminent group of distinguished people to bring this project forward.
