The McGeorge Global Center hosted a meeting through the International Jurist Series with Lidija Nedelkova, President of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Macedonia, and Vladimir Panchevski, Chief Judge of Basic Court Skopje 1-Skopje on Oct. 3, 2013.

The Sacramento visit was arranged through Judge Lawrence Brown of the Sacramento Superior Court, who had participated in a program in Macedonia with the judges, and the U.S. State Department. Macedonia is transitioning to a more adversarial approach in its criminal justice system. At the McGeorge meeting Professors Linda Carter, Emily Garcia-Uhrig, Cary Bricker, Brian Landsberg, and Jay Leach discussed ideas relating to comparative criminal procedure, advocacy, evidence, and legal education.
