The U.S. Department of State hosted ten Supreme Court judges from African countries including Tanzania's Chief Justice Mohamed Chande Othman (center at back row) to participate in a ten-day Voluntary Visitors Project from October 14 through 24, 2012. The program aimed to expose the justices to the U.S. trial process, court management systems, alternate dispute resolution and mediation, and judicial training opportunities. In addition, the program promoted the rule of law and the advancement of fair, transparent, accessible and independent judiciaries around the world and examined the U.S. judicial, civil and criminal justice systems. The delegation of justices met with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Upon returning to Tanzania, Chief Justice Othman expressed his appreciation to the U.S. Department of State and lauded its support for African Supreme Court Justices to meet each other and their American counterparts through the exchange program.
