Britain’s top legal advisor to speak on terrorism and law
Barry and Roberta Cooper Ramo establish law school lecture series

Dr. Barry and Roberta Cooper Ramo of Albuquerque have established the Ramo Lecture on International Justice at the UNM School of Law.

Dr. Ramo is a member of the New Mexico Heart Institute and clinical professor at the UNM School of Medicine and at Duke University. He serves on the Albuquerque Community Foundation board. Cooper Ramo is a lawyer at Modrall Sperling law firm and former president of the UNM Board of Regents. She was the first woman president of the American Bar Association.

The attorney general for Great Britain, the Honorable Lord Peter Goldsmith QC, will give the inaugural Ramo Lecture on International Justice “Terrorism and the Rule of Law,” on Thursday, Oct. 28, at 5 p.m. at the UNM Law School, 1117 Stanford NE. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with guests Judge James A. Parker, Judge Harris L. Hartz and Justice Pamela B. Minzner. Admission and parking are free.

The Ramo lectures will be held biannually. World-renowned speakers will give talks regarding the international impact of the Rule of Law “to inspire law students to recognize their special responsibilities in a complex world,” Cooper Ramo said.
