A former Massachusetts judge — who's now an adjunct law professor at Suffolk University Law School — leaves with some of his students Friday to begin a joint class with professors and students at the University of Havana in Cuba.

Judge Isaac Borenstein is a native of Cuba, who has been teaching in his homeland for years, but never with students from both countries.

Borenstein joins Morning Edition to discuss his perspectives on U.S. plans to normalize relations with Cuba.
