Legal training for Iraqi exiles Bernard Hibbitts at 6:58 PM ET
[JURIST] From Saturday's Omaha Herald and Knight Ridder:
About 40 exiled Iraqi lawyers and judges - some from Europe and the Persian Gulf - are converging on Washington this weekend for legal training that would allow them to take part in temporary courts in a postwar Iraq. Justice Department officials and outside experts in international law, war crimes and U.S.-style judicial systems are leading the two-week course, participants say.
