Journal of Civil Law Studies, Volume 14 (2021-2022)

The Journal of Civil Law Studies, Volume 14 (2021-2022) is now online.

In a three-page Avant-Propos, the Editor-in-Chief explains:

Volume 14 of the Journal of Civil Law Studies is published one year behind schedule, proving the fragility and the resilience of the operation. Fragility, as it was hit by a series of events, such as the COVID pandemic that paralyzed many human ventures all over the world. Fragility, because human causes impacted the personal life of its major actors, such as the Editor-in-Chief’s unexpected long-time leave and the Managing-Editors moving to other places. Resilience, because editing continued thanks to devoted LL.M. graduates who answered the call and joined the Center of Civil Law Studies as Research Associates. Resilience, because the team did not give up and the venture is too successful to fail. Volume 14 of 2021 comes out as Volume 14 of 2021-2022. After Volume 15 of 2022-2023, the Journal will try to come back to two annual issues matching the calendar year.
