I had the opportunity to travel the world...
Program Administrator (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 3, 2018
My work at California Western School of Law changed my life. I have had the opportunity to travel through several countries in Latin America to learn different legal cultures and to offer Spanish language instruction in oral advocacy skills for lawyers from Central and South America. Every country in Latin America is in the transition from a repressive inquisitorial judicial system to a more modern and transparent adversarial system found in the U.S. Thanks to the program I oversee (ACCESO Capacitación), Cal Western has trained more than 5,000 lawyers for two decades. Every day I interact with different defense attorneys, prosecutors, judges and law students who want to be trained in our programs. The most difficult part of my job is not receiving the due recognition for so much time that I have invested, and the best thing so far is having the fortune of having made great friends throughout the Americas.
