As the centenary anniversary of the Senate of Latvia is approaching, the Supreme Court intends to gather information about the most valuable judgments of the Senate (1918-1940), which are referenced in today's rulings, commentaries and publications that have proved to be useful in the work of lawyers (and not just lawyers), drawing on some ideas, arguments or forms of expression. Or such judgements have risen interest regarding legal techniques or expressions utilized.

We invite you to share the following information. Send us the judgment or simply information about this judgment (department, date, number, topic, etc.). We would be glad if you could write at least a sentence explaining why this judgment is valuable to you and how you have made use of it.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Please send the information to Rasma Zvejniece, Head of the Division of Communication of the Supreme Court, until September 5.

The Senate of Latvia was the highest judicial institution during the interwar period in Latvia. Until 1940, when the Senate was liquidated by the Soviet power, it had examined more than 65 000 cases and strengthened the rule of law in Latvia. The Supreme Court of the Republic of Latvia, renovated in 1990, is a continuation of the work and traditions of the Senate of Latvia.
