UWS students connect with United Kingdom legal barrister

This spring, UW-Superior's LSTU 363 comparative law and courts class conducted an interactive Zoom session with Victoria May, a legal barrister from the United Kingdom.

“My students were thrilled to be able to speak with and ask questions of this international law professional,” said Steven Steblay, senior lecturer of criminal justice and legal studies. “Our class also benefited from exposure to an international perspective in the global criminal justice system.”  

May is employed with the United Kingdom government and specializes in criminal and civil law, war crimes and international wildlife crimes with extensive experience working with the European Union and was assigned as a special prosecutor assisting in Kosovo war crime investigations. May also worked in Malawi, Africa, prosecuting/combating international wildlife crimes.

“This international presentation accomplished one of the goals that was set for my course this semester – expanding the student's knowledge of criminal justice systems globally and understanding and appreciating different dimensions in law and courts,” said Steblay.
