The Western BUsiness Law Educator blog is authored by Steve Honig, a partner with the law firm Duane Morris LLP. The blog focuses on Mr. Honig’s experiences teaching “would-be Russian lawyers” about American business law at the University of Belgorod. Steve’s thoughtful commentary on what to teach these students, and the difficulties he encounters in describing the technical aspects of the legalities in business law makes for an interesting read.
