Message from the President and executive secretary (December 2020)
It is with great sorrow that we are following all COVID-19 developments and subsequent travel restrictions. We had been looking forward to meeting many of you during our biennial course and conference to take place in Brisbane, Australia in July 2020. Unfortunately, we had to cancel these meetings. Since travel possibilities are still uncertain in many parts of the world, we have not yet set a new date for the course and conference. Trust that we will inform you as soon as possible once we are able to set a new date.
Meanwhile, we hope you stay tuned with us and can find some inspiration on legal pluralism in the latest issue of our Journal of Legal Pluralism. The December 2020 issue will give you a varied and stimulating impression of our field. Check the Journal’s website for more information at https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rjlp20/current !
Stay tuned and healthy!
Janine Ubink (President) and Carolien Jacobs (Executive Secretary)
