We are deeply saddened by the death, on 24 October, of Gordon Woodman, professor of law at Birmingham University. Prof. Woodman, among other things, was an expert on law in Africa, especially in Ghana, and on the legal situation of Africans in the UK. He participated in workshops at the IISL and his work was published within the Oñati International Series in Law and Society (Hart-Bloomsbury); for example, in M.C. Foblets and T. von Trotha, eds., 2004, Healing the Wounds. Essays on the Reconstruction of Societies after War and in M.C. Foblets and A.D. Renteln, eds. 2009, Comparative Perspectives on the Cultural Defense. Our condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues.
