Description: 

A recent account of the Department of Justice's work with Colombia, Mexico, Afghanistan and the European Union as reported by a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the DOJ/Criminal Division. The work included building partnerships and aiding in criminal justice reform in areas plagued by the major narcotics cartels, terrorism networks and other international organized crime groups. The past relationships serve as reminders of the importance of continuing these efforts today. From 1980 - 1991, Mary Lee Warren prosecuted major Organized Crime and Narcotics Cartel cases as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. She started working at the DOJ in 1991 as Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Division. She became the "point person" on criminal justice reform, particularly in relations with Colombia and then Mexico and Afghanistan. Her final post from 2007 - 2011 was as the Senior Justice Counselor for the European Union and International Criminal Matters at the U.S. Mission to the EU in Brussels. This event costs $25 and includes lunch.
