Courting Costa Rica

Josef Raszewski, 3L, spent the second part of this past summer in the sunshine and warmth of Costa Rica. His time was not spent adoring the vast wildlife, relaxing in the coastal waters, or vacationing in the tropical climate but rather working as an intern at the Constitutional Chambers of the Supreme Court of Costa Rica through a special Academic Cooperation Agreement Duquesne Kline School of Law has with the Court. This experience proved to be invaluable to him. Raszewski gained knowledge about a different justice system than the one in the United States and had the opportunity to work on important cases.
