Giving Back: John Kurowski Hosts "Human Rights and a Just Society" Event

Kurowski Shultz Attorneys At Law


John Kurowski, the Managing Partner of Kurowski Shultz organized and hosted “Human Rights and a Just Society” at the Nicholas Copernicus University School of Law and Administration (NCU) in Torun, Poland on October 11 and 12, 2015.

Titled “Europe Is On Fire: Fleeing for Freedom or Survival?” this year’s symposium tackled the urgent issue of European migration and asylum.

The program was led by speakers from a UN working group and one of Human Rights Watch’s leading advocates in Europe. Over 150 American and Polish students also heard the riveting story of Jan Nawasi, an Afghan migrant who survived a gruesome 8 year odyssey of migration to Bologna, Italy where he resides today.

On Tuesday October 13, 2015, the Faculty Council of NCU law school presented Mr. Kurowski with a commendation in recognition of his 10 years of organizing the symposium.
