I had the opportunity last month to teach law students at six universities across Moldova, a former Soviet republic located between Romania and Ukraine. Moldova is an interesting place because the culture, political system and economy are constantly being pulled back and forth between Russia and Western Europe.

As a free nation of only 26 years, Moldova does not have an established judicial tradition; it has an evolving civil law system and no jury trials. The country faces unique challenges with corruption inside and out of the legal system, due in large part to the enormous power held by judges and prosecutors over the outcome of cases.
