25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, rule of law remains a key issue in Russia.  Recent geopolitical tensions and other developments have heightened awareness of this.  Doran will present a practicing lawyer’s perspective on it and also discuss some of the ways practitioners manage uncertainty in this context.
