Professor Keith Vetter, the Ted and Louana Frois Distinguished Professor of International Law Studies, was invited to lecture before the University of Edinburgh Faculty of Law, Centre for Legal History, in December 2008.

The topic was “A Contribution of Roman Law to the New World: The Creation of the Creoles of Colour in the United States.” He also delivered a lecture at the University of Glasgow Faculty of Law, in December, on “The Different Law of Manumission in Louisiana: The Contribution of Roman Law to the Formation of Jazz.”

Vetter was also cited by the city of Cuernavaca, Mexico, for his contribution to the development of tourism in the city. Vetter has been director of the Loyola College of Law’s Summer Program in Cuernavaca for the past 19 years. Each summer, the program brings up to 80 law students from law schools in the United States to Cuernavaca for a three-week session.
