Professor Ronald Rotunda was one of a small and elite group of speakers at the July 2-3 International Judicial Conference in Riga, Latvia, at which U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito was guest of honor and keynote speaker.

Hosted by the United States Embassy, the Supreme Court of Latvia, and the Latvian Ministry of Justice, the conference drew over two hundred participants from seven countries and focused on issues related to ethics, reform, and transparency.

In addition to Rotunda and Alito, guest speakers were the President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice, and Minister of Justice of Latvia; Professor Jeffrey Hazard; and Professor Stephen Burbank.

While visiting Latvia, Rotunda and his wife Kyndra Rotunda enjoyed an intimate dinner along with Justice Alito at the home of U.S. Ambassador to Latvia Catherine Todd Bailey (photo above).

Rotunda teaches Constitutional Law and Legal Ethics and is the author of several treatises that are among the most widely cited modern authorities on constitutional law and procedure and professional ethics.
