TALLINN - The Estonian Supreme Court was visited on Tuesday by executive director of the US Congressional Office for International Leadership (COIL) Jane Sargus and deputy executive director Maura Shelden.
Sargus pointed out that COIL has had ten years of remarkable cooperation with the Supreme Court and that they are pleased to have been able to support many Estonians' visits to the United States. Cooperation is set to continue and agreements have already been made for this year. Topics discussed in the course of Sargus' and Shelden's visit include study visits with the program's alumni, further cooperation and the general global situation.
