Helping to develop the Rule of Law in the aftermath of the "Arab Spring"

Stephanie M

3L Stephanie Macuiba

"After the 'Arab Spring,' I was interested in learning more about one of the most complex regions of the world.  To truly understand the region and the current political climate, I decided to spend my summer working at the Arab Center for the Development of the Rule of Law and Integrity in Beirut, Lebanon. 

The experience has been extremely insightful and I have learned a great deal about the cultures and legal systems of the Middle East by researching and writing briefs, policy papers and proposals.  I would highly recommend spending a summer interning abroad; the skills gained are invaluable."
