Bar Association Launches Effort to Advance Human Rights / Promote Rule of Law


Driskill, Matt, THE JOURNAL RECORD


multinational effort to advance human rights and the rule of law around the world.

MacCrate also suggested that an internship program be established between American law firms and law schools for Soviet lawyers to foster an understanding of American legal theory and practice.

"Our existing programs of bilateral declarations of cooperation with foreign bar associations and international legal organizations have been extraordinarily successful," he said, "particularly those with the Association of Soviet Lawyers and the Peoples Republic of China.

"Through these declarations we have been able to initiate useful discussions of human rights, environmental law and other major issues.

"We have also achieved," MacCrate added, "our stated purpose of facilitating and greatly multiplying professional contacts among American and foreign lawyers."

The ABA has "opened the door," he said, "and I believe that the important dialogue begun by the ABA will be amplified by the many American lawyers now travelling to those countries."
