The last two years have been anything but normal. We have lost the opportunity of face to face contact, and this meant that our conferences were online, and that proceedings were remote. But we are all still here, and raring to go!

The Board of IAL are looking for proposals for the next IAL conference. Please write to with your suggestions, including topic and timing.

The Editorial Board of Theory and Practice of Legislation (TPLeg) are looking for articles and proposals for special issues. Please contact

Let’s shake the bitter taste of 2020 and 2021, let’s enjoy a healthy and happy 2022!

IAL President
