On Friday we concluded our OASIS study trip! Over the last 2 weeks, participants from 5 different law schools in Mexico experienced a comprehensive view of the criminal justice system in the United States. By meeting with some of the central operators and experts in the field, our participants have heard from diverse perspectives within the criminal justice system. We have truly enjoyed getting to spend the last couple of weeks with this group and look forward to seeing them take this knowledge back to their institutions. Thank you to the office at the Embajada Estados Unidos en México.
