Planting the Flag in Syracuse


I spent yesterday in Syracuse visiting our office there. It had been awhile: since my last visit to Central New York, we've added new staff, moved into new office space, and launched several new initiatives focused on tribal justice issues. Syracuse and London are half a world apart, obviously, but we are basically attempting to do the same thing in both locations: plant our flag in new territory. One of the things I like about the Center for Court Innovation is that we are committed to adapting to conditions on the ground. So while the goal is the same, our offices in Syracuse and London are evolving in different ways (an emphasis on tribal justice wouldn't make much sense in England, for example).
