The Right Livelihood Award is presented annually in Stockholm at a ceremony in the Swedish Parliament. It was established in 1980 to honor and support those “offering practical and exemplary answers to the most urgent challenges facing us today,” and it has become widely known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize.”
Keller Rohrback represents the RMI in the Nuclear Zero Lawsuit, which asks the Court to order the U.S. to fulfill its legal obligation under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to negotiate in good faith to cease the nuclear arms race, and for nuclear disarmament.
Upon hearing of the award, lead attorney Laurie Ashton said, “Minister deBrum has been tireless and fearless in his focused pursuit, on behalf of the Marshall Islands, of binding, legal solutions to the abject failure of the Nations possessing nuclear weapons to negotiate nuclear disarmament in good faith. It is a privilege to represent the Marshall Islands and work on this tremendous effort and I congratulate Minister deBrum, and the people of the Marshall Islands, on this well-deserved award.”
Keller Rohrback L.L.P. is a law firm based in the United States that represents clients throughout the world. The firm has offices in Seattle, New York, Phoenix, and Santa Barbara, and is affiliated with independent law firms in Europe, South America, and Asia.
