NITA and Lawyers Without Borders Go to Kenya for a Public Service International Program

Posted On By


NITA and Lawyers Without Borders (LWOB) joined forces and ventured to Kenya for a public service international program, held July 23 – 27 at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies. Judge Ann Williams served as NITA’s Program Director, leading a group of 17 faculty members who trained 80 attorneys in Kenya on Trial Advocacy and Prevention of Terrorism Act.


After the 5-day training concluded, NITA Faculty Shareema Abel stated, “All I can say is wow! Kenya was nothing short of amazing. The trainees were engaged and the Kenyan Institute trainers embraced the NITA method. I feel so blessed to have been chosen for such an awesome opportunity. It drove home how much we have here in the States and how important it is to advocate for others. I was there to teach, and in turn I was taught so much!”

Ms. Abel also said she had the pleasure of teaching the NITA method, alongside NITA Faculty Mike Ginsburg, to the LWOB faculty and the Kenyan institute trainees whom all worked together to train the group of attorneys.
