A group of Russian judges are visiting Oklahoma

Some judges from overseas are spending time in Oklahoma, hoping to learn the ins and outs of the American legal system.

The five judges from Russia are staying in Muskogee. Wednesday, they were in Tulsa, touring the Gilcrease Museum.

The judges say there are striking similarities between our legal system and theirs. Magistrate judge Kimberly West: "It’s been beneficial to us as well, compare and contrast the way our legal system works to the way their systems works."

One of the Russian judges actually attended college in Georgia. He acted as a translator.
