The WSBA is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for WSBA members to visit Cuba for the purposes of researching their legal system. WSBA President-elect Steve Crossland will be leading a delegation to visit Cuba October 16–21, 2011. Delegates will participate in professional meetings and site visits each day; meetings and topics for discussion will be determined by the research interests and composition of the team.  

Travel to Cuba is restricted by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U. S. Treasury Department, and the delegation will be travelling under OFAC regulation 31 CFR §515.564 General license for professional research. The trip is being coordinated by Washington, DC-based, Professionals Abroad, a division of Academic Travel Abroad, a 60-year-old organization licensed by the OFAC as a Travel Services Provider for U.S. travel to Cuba.

The cost per delegate is $3,995; no WSBA funds will be used. Since space is limited, if you are interested please act soon by contacting Professionals Abroad at 1-877-298-9677.  See the letter from Steve Crossland for more information.
