SOVIET BRIEFING TOUR
The Section's Committee on Relations with Lawyers
of Other Nations organized a highly successful visit to
Moscow and Leningrad for 252 American lawyers and
their wives during the period October 21-30, 1973.
In Moscow and Leningrad, members of the group met
with outstanding legal representatives of the Govern-
ment of the USSR and of the practicing bar. Small groups
visited the headquarters of the Moscow Provincial Bar
Association, met with the Deputy Minister of Justice
and some of his colleagues, and were also privileged to
attend a criminal court proceeding. Section Chairman
Donald K. Duvall and Charles R. Norberg, Chairman of
the Committee on Relations with Lawyers of Other
Nations, were interviewed by Radio Moscow and the
Moscow News (English language newspaper).
Hon. Donald K. Duvall, Charles R. Norberg, and
Walter W. Regirer managed the briefing trip, and Walter
W. Regirer, as Chairman of the Committee's Sub-

substantive program during the USA-USSR symposium
on  international trade. Robert Starr of London,
England, was Chairman of the Curriculum Committee

be published by the Section early in 1974.
During the visits, a program of international educa-
