Jones Day partner CHAD READLER traveled to Nairobi this month to participate in an eight-day Lawyers Without Borders (LWOB) program focused on improving trial skills of Kenyan prosecutors and private practitioners who litigate cases involving victims of gender violence. Four U.S. federal judges were among the international team of volunteers. Now in its fourth year, the LWOB Kenya program addressed the impact of new laws and their implementation in the context of a trial, in addition to improving trial advocacy skills through a full mock trial. The mock case involved gender violence in an urban setting, addressing the new sexual assault laws enacted in Kenya.
