Jurisprudence in Central and Eastern Europe: Work in Progress 2020 - postponed to 2021

On behalf of the organizers of the 15th CEENJ conference at the University of Warsaw “Jurisprudence in Central and Eastern Europe: Work in Progress 2020” in Warsaw, I would like to thank you for your interest in the conference. 

Please be informed that after long deliberations, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Warsaw conference to the next year. Please accept our apologies for letting you know so late but to the last moment we hoped that the COVID-19 crisis would fade and we will all have the opportunity to meet at the University of Warsaw. Unfortunately, the situation is getting worse which made us to take this difficult decision.

The good news is that all your submissions remain valid and will be considered for the 2021 conference, unless you decide to withdraw them. Additionally, we will announce another call for papers at the beginning of 2021.

Stay safe in these difficult times. We look forward to seeing you all in Warsaw next year.
