A look into the Kingdom of Bhutan's Supreme Court

Apr. 25, 2017

In today's edition of The Asia Times is my article covering my interview earlier this month with Bhutan's Supreme Court Chief Justice, Lyonpo Tshering Wangchuck. Our meeting in his chambers in Bhutan's capital of Thimphu was lengthy as CJ Wangchuck was generous both with his time and his spirit. And from the small world chronicles, I learned shortly before our meeting that CJ Wangchuck received his LLM degree from my alma mater, George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C. A small world indeed.
