“"Taking part at the International Legal Scholars Academy at Widener University was a unique experience. The students spent a week at Delaware Law School attending classes, visiting The Philadelphia Court, and we even had the chance to see the Delaware Supreme Court oral arguments. It was a great opportunity for life, not only for our professional life but to learn about the American Judicial Power and a different judiciary system. It was terrific getting to know the professors, law students, judges, and lawyers. It is a must-do in your life!!!"”
