President's Message

Greetings from Montana!

First Lady Susan and I are greatly honored to be representatives of this noted Academy April ‘19 – ‘20.

We welcome everyone to learn more about IATL: our activities promoting justice for all, and supporting and advancing the Rule of Law while encouraging interaction between IATL and lawyers and judges from all around the world. The Academy additionally recognizes and strives to incorporate into our mission that the foundation for the Rule of Law must be an independent judiciary.

We are also involved in initiatives such as education and awareness needed to help stop human trafficking and encourage restorative justice for youth, growing the diversity of our membership, and establishing exchanges and training with judges, attorneys, and human rights advocates throughout the globe. We have a unique partnership with the National Judicial College in Reno, NV, that has already been activated with a recent judicial course in Uganda.

Our Executive Office and staff, led by Executive Director Janel Fick and her team, stand ready to answer any questions that our Fellows or interested visitors to this Academy website may have.

Of course, Susan and I invite any of you to come visit us in our Cherished Montana!

Cliff Edwards

President, IATL
