Spurlock helps bring rule of law to Mongolia

1908RandallCountyCourthouseCanyonTexas907TJnsn My contracts colleague at Texas Wesleyan, Joe Spurlock, has been working for a decade helping the judiciary of Mongolia make its transition from Soviet authoritarianism to a free and independent group that helps further the rule of law in the country.

Joe is a former Texas state legislator, gubernatorial advisor, and judge at both the trial and appellate levels, and he runs TW's Asian Judicial Institute.  Over the years he's brought scores of Mongolian legal officials to Texas in the summer to learn about the American system.

I mention this now because if you happen to be flying American Airlines this month, you'll see a piece about Joe's work in the American Way magazine.  If you're staying home, you can read it online here.
