Take note – story published 1 year and 2 months ago

President Egils Levits will be the keynote speaker at an event on April 20 to mark the 25th anniverary of the Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL).

Levits' lecture, which will be titled "The problem of Russia's international accountability" will be delivered at 10:00 on April 20, and we will carry a livestream of the event in English here on LSM. As a former judge at the European Court of Justice President Levits should have plenty of expertise to share on the subject, and in recent months has been a leading voice in calling for Russia to answer before an international tribunal for its crimes in Ukraine. 

The RGSL 25th Anniversary lecture series will cover areas of law and business, international law, European Law, European Union, rule of law and constitutionalism, says RGSL Rector Dr. Adam Czarnota.

The next speakers include professor Stefan Auer from Hong Kong University who will speak on the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the limits of EU Europe, Adam Liberman from University New South Wales in Sydney who will discuss intellectual property, and professor Martin Krygier from University New South Wales in Sydney who will speak on the rule of law.

RGSL was established in 1998 by agreement between the Latvian and Swedish Governments and the Soros Foundation Latvia. RGSL is a specialised law school offering Masters programmes in international public and private law subjects including European law, human rights, international commercial law, EU policy, finance and technology. It also offers two interdisciplinary Bachelor programmes in which law is studied in combination with business and diplomacy. RGSL faculty and students come from over 30 different countries.
