Volkmar Gessner: in memoriam
Professor Volkmar Gessner With sadness we wish to inform you, that after a long illness, Prof. Dr. Volkmar Gessner has passed away.

He was one of the founders, and probably the most important force, of the International Institute for the Sociology of Law. He not only worked together with Kiko Caballero and André-Jean Arnaud on creation of the Institute but, ever since that time, always offered his time and energy to the Institute. In 2003-2005 he served as its Scientific Director.

His illness did not allow him to attend the 25th Anniversary Congress of the Institute this year but he was in touch with the organiser giving valuable advice.

He was a distinguished scholar in sociology of law and a dear friend of the Institute. He will be deeply missed.
