We might be working from home currently (or many of us at least) but we’ve still managed to get all our ducks in a row to commence very soon! What does this mean? It means we will be a real live legal centre, we can disburse funds, hire staff and students and start doing the actual research. Centres of Excellence are a bit like “over night success” bands or books. Behind the exciting launches and announcements there is always years of background work, collaboration and building the portfolio of an internationally outstanding team. We are beyond pleased to have stayed on track in the midst of pandemic and have already incorporated a lot of new ideas from the experiences of 2020. Hopefully next time you see us, we’ll be a real, live, commenced centre 😀🏻🦆🦆🦆
