 Keynote and Highlights

The event will feature a conversation on the rule of law in today’s changing global landscape between ABA ROLI’s Board Chair Judge M. Margaret McKeown of the U.S Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, and Justice Rosalie Abella, Senior Judge on the Supreme Court of Canada. We will also recognize the contributions of the 2019 ABA International Human Rights Award recipient, Saudi lawyer Waleed Abu Al-Khair, for his work to advance human rights and advocate for justice in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In addition, the Luncheon  will commemorate the life of ABA CEELI/ROLI co-founder and former ABA President (1991-1992) Talbot (“Sandy”) D’Alemberte. Sandy was a leading advocate for human and civil rights around the world, a pioneer of dispute resolution, a constitutional expert, and a champion of open government. His commitment to justice remains a core value of ABA ROLI’s work.
