My apologies for taking so long between updates -- I had a software clash between Linux and the photograph uploading applet that Travellerspoint uses. In the end, I spent a good 4 hours troubleshooting the problem, after which point, I basically didn't have any desire to spend more time on the internet. Additionally, because of the nature of the program that I'm in, I don't have much to report on a day-to-day basis.
Yesterday, the group went to Dubrovnik to tour the county courthouse and meet a few Croatian judges. There was some discussion about legal comparisons, but mostly, they explained the structure of the court and the way things are changing here in Croatia as they move toward EU integration.
An American Bar Association representative has been here for the last two days. Every seven years, the Bar Association has to review the accreditation of all programs to make sure they comply to required standards. I was the lucky guy to have the Bar Association rep sitting right behind me during class at all times. In other words, I couldn't distract myself with anything.
I am consistently amazed by the amount of drinking that goes on in law school. Almost every day, one of my classmates (myself included) has some sort of party and/or a group of people decide to go to the Old Town for some imbibing. I've been party to these activities for the last three days and I think I'm going to put the brakes on for at least a night or two.
On Friday, a group of my classmates and I are going to head up to Split and then out to the island of Hvar. I might update the blog once between now and when we return, but I'm putting much consideration into leaving my computer here in Dubrovnik to make the trip less strenuous in terms of luggage-weight.
