André-Jean Arnaud in Memoriam

André-Jean ArnaudWith biggest sadness we learned that Professor Andre-Jean Arnaud the first scientific director of the International Institute for the Sociology of Law passed away before Christmas. Professor Andre- Jean Arnaud was a well known distinguish socio-legal scholar who just last year received Adam Podgorecki’s Prize in recognition for lifetime academic achievement.

For us Andre-Jean Arnaud was above all one of the founding fathers of the Institute, its first academic director (in 1989) and member of its Governing Board for life. He was the true friend always willing to devote time and energy to the Institute.

Professor Andre-Jean Arnaud designed the structure of the Institute, which survived more than 26 years, and is still in full operation. He always wanted to make the Institute the scholarly meeting place in which scholars from different time will exchange ideas.

He always stressed the necessity to develop not only the master program but also have PhD researchers around in the Institute in Onati. In his vision, the Institute was the center for advanced studies, which it has actually became.

He will be deeply missed by the staff of the Institute and global socio-legal community.
